s++ and its other iterations is an ever-evolving cross platform A/V installation, which is based on the research of phasing and polyrhythm phenomena. The work uses, as a driving force, a set of 15 pendulums. A pendulum is a repetitive movement of a heavy object attached to a string. When the pendulum is pushed, or released, it starts to swing in what is also known as a sinusoidal movement. Each pendulum has a different string length, which determines its rate of oscillation.
Having 15 different pendulums creates a complex rhythmical system, which is then transformed and translated into an audio and visual presentation. When each pendulum crosses its middle point (also known as “zero-crossing”) a trigger is produced, causing a flash of sound and light.
Each pendulum is assigned to one (virtual) display, resulting in an immersive light and sound composition. In the presented iteration, the work spills out of its physical boundaries and into the digital realm. The user goes through a journey of space, sound and light, where the line between forced reality and control is fragile.
