Pendulum is a bronze cast attached to the end of a long metal rod hanging from the ceiling. It is the human hand, reaching. The motion of the piece contradicts the normal function of pendulums: Pendulum will swing only a short time before air and mechanical resistance reduce the motion to a slight quiver. The hand is pointing toward the earth, reaching for the dust, but not quite touching it is unable to draw a line on the surface. With Pendulum, kinetic energy is converted into anticipation: the potential for action.
