You never know what you’ll find when you buy something that’s vintage. When photographer Alex Galmeanu bought a rare 50-year-old camera off eBay, he never expected to find an exposed (but undeveloped) roll of film inside. “Of course I had it developed right away,” he wrote, “and, as a surprise again, I was able to recover 10 quite usable images, especially when considering their age.
At Brighton Festival, an annual arts festival in England, one of the world’s most innovative choreographers, William Forsythe, has brought out a fun installation that makes visitors unintentionally dance. Hundreds of delicate pendulums, swinging in timed sequences, dangle from an old municipal market space. Visitors are welcome to walk through the installation but they must avoid touching the pendulums. Suddenly, you’ve become a dancer as your strides and side-steps produce a lively choreography!
You can enjoy Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2 at Circus Street Market from now till May 25. If you’d like to see how this works, watch a version of Forsythe’s dance-inducing installation, here.
