Video Pendulums into Infinity

Jonathan Brainin’s Pendulum Video is a mesmerizing video sculpture work-in-progress. A camera points at a video monitor which is displaying the image from the camera. When a second monitor swings in front of the first, it creates a beautiful repeating pendulum pattern across the screen. Check out Jonathan’s videos for a few other modes that alter the look of this slick installation. [via Triangulation Blog]
