Design Inspiration :
Raphael’s Pendulum


Location : Roche Penzberg, Germany

A great design makes the audience imagine, as with the kinetic artwork designed by ART+COM studio.

A circle-shaped pendulum is suspended in the air inside the building, that serves as an interaction between the space and the audience. While the pendulum swings across the invisible painting, it makes the painting visible piece by piece. The screen pauses when it focuses on each different figure. 

Apparently, the pendulum is programmed to memorize the whole position of the virtual painting. The screen changes according to its position. When it encounters a certain point where figures are depicted, the penulum may be programmed to pause for a while.
