'Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time' Involves Pendulums

Installations that interact with passersby are almost always full of unexpected energy as Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2 shows. Made up of hundreds of delicate pendulums, it turns visitors into unintentional dancers as they bob and weave to avoid getting hit by one. Absolutely playful, sidestepping the pendulums becomes as much of a game as it does a dance.

Designed by William Forsythe, an American dancer and choreographer based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2 is currently installed at Circus Street Market until the end of the month. Swinging in criss-crossing directions, the pendulums are interestingly not set to music. The footsteps (and perhaps laughter) are enough sounds.
