Pendulums and Noise

Last December, we dropped by La Villette to experience two interactive installations: The first was Ryoji Ikeda’s Test Pattern - an assault to the senses in the most overwhelming way via light and sound sequences. 

In the opposite room was William Forsythe’s Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No 2. The room was filled with the sound of hundreds of swishing pendulums moving in lazy circles, and people making their way gingerly between them, trying to not get tangled in the strings.
