The video of the pendulums is after the fold. It’s beautiful and a bit mesmerizing. You should watch it!
I saw the pendulums the other day and watched it twice in a row, drooling from mesmerization.
It’s fun to pick one and follow it, which breaks the illusion somewhat, then pull back to see the whole and have it kick back in.
I’m gonna watch it again now…
