In "Infinite Pendulum", the fourth dimension takes precedence. The surface area of a girl on a swing—illuminated by LEDs set in a stainless steel frame—is secondary to the pendulum-like swing of her body over the East China Sea. Each cycle of the figure approaching and withdrawing from the viewer marks a new increment of time. What does this time mark? The answer is left to the viewer. As he relaxes into the constancy of the pendulum, differences between Western ideas of linear time and Eastern ideas of cyclical time become irrelevant. A flash of nostalgia for one’s own experiences sends the onlooker to a time and a place beyond the scope of this seemingly simple piece of art. [Clare Jacobson]
