Gaudeamus I

04/09/2019 • Utrecht • with Catchpenny Ensemble

On this Wednesday edition of the Gaudeamus festival I have the honor to conduct the Catchpenny ensemble with my sand pendulum.

The sand pendulum project is developed during my residency this August at the De Vrolijkheid in Rijswijk, a cultural association in the asylum seekers centre (AZC).
The double pendulum creates a 3 dimensional colorful drawing that combines 2 spiral movements in one. Lit in a special way the methodical structures become visible.
The spiral movement reminds of of the evolving journey in life. The project is part of an ongoing research about visualizing harmonies, the natural flow of things creating patterns and their hidden (chaotic) structures.
