DAN SENN a1 a1 4218 N. Cheyenne, Tacoma, WA 98407-5010, USA
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.
