This is a kinetic projector mechanism that produces a continuous sequence of changing drawings that is projected onto a wall. The viewer interacts with the sculpture by gently pushing the weights of the pendulum. This interaction is scored into a loop of motion picture film that is fed into a standard projector, and a live animation is projected. The piece explores the way a simple repetitive process can lead to a wide array of imagery that is built up over time. The images created are traces of gravitational movements over time, and are similar to musical scores and bizarre scriptures. The filmstrips are also exhibited as long light boxes in conjunction with the mechanism.
