Pendulum-based instruments, percussive video, sound art, and the permanence of ephemeral public art

  • DAN SENN (a1)
    • Published online: 04 April 2001

In this article, and within the context of sound art as a basis for artistic freedom in experimental music and art, the development of pendulum-based sculptural instruments and an improvisational form of video called ‘percussive video’ are described. Methods used to produce time-based public art events are also outlined, and their effectiveness in directing social change at the local level is discussed.
