Utilizing swings, sensors, sound, visual projections and programming, Pendula is the brainchild of Vancouver based creatives Nancy Lee and Kiran Bhumber. In Pendula, Lee and Bhumber stage an inhabitable synthesis of technology, movement, and social space by connecting swing sets with a responsive audio-visual apparatus, generating an installation which participants both occupy and co-create. Pendula plays with nascent ambiguities in our definitions of power and agency in the shifting context of digital worlds’ proliferation and integration into physical and social spaces.
A special adaptation of Pendula has been created for this year’s Festival and will feature 10-minute musical performances featuring Neelamjit Dhillion and Clara Shandler.
