The artist and William Forsythe has mounted a mesmerizing installation in Paris called "Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2" -- in which he fills a huge room with swinging pendulums, and viewers are supposed to walk among them without running into any.
Quite a challenge, as the video shows! As a writeup at Colossal notes:
“The spectators are free to attempt a navigation of this statistically unpredictable environment, but are requested to avoid coming in contact with any of the swinging pendulums,” says an artist statement regarding Forsythe’s choreographic object. “This task, which automatically intimates and alerts the spectators innate predictive faculties, produces a lively choreography of manifold and intricate avoidance strategies.”
Me, I'd love to see a video of precisely how the gallery-workers set those pendulums in motion every day.
