THE KEYHOLE


about this photo
Cosmic Dance
by djdunkle
All that we are and perceive, including the fundamental foundation of the earth itself, is truly in motion through the larger Cosmos. In the stillness of the vast desert, Black Rock City rotates through endless spirals, mostly outside of our awareness. The Cosmic Dance brings this perpetual motion into the realm of our ordinary senses, using a centuries-old yet still relevant technology, the Foucault Pendulum. The continual spinning of our planet Earth, and the passage of what we call time, can be remarked as the pendulum swings, pegs are toppled at regular intervals, and audible tones are emitted by the resonant harmonics of Celestial Motion.
