City of Sydney

Visitors to the newly refurbished East Sydney Community and Arts Centre are invited to engage in physical or imaginative play in the new interactive artwork –S(w)ing by artists Turpin and Crawford.

Big Kahuna Imagineering was commissioned by the artists and the City of Sydney to realise this exquisite artwork from the concept design. Three large illuminated colourful pendulum discs swing in a joyous choreography of colour, light and movement. Coloured ropes connected to pulleys are pulled by children playing in the space below to set the pendulums and their colourful discs in gentle or energetic motion. Overlapping in varying degrees, the movement of the translucent discs mixes vivid colour and illuminated pattern live.
