Liew Niyomkarn – Swing


Swing is a sound ensemble sculpture that considers the relationship between momentum and the physicality of sound. Each sculpture has a different sound. Sounds are created from metal, bearings, almonds, tiny scrap metals, marbles, coins, red beans and rice.  There is a particular object in each pair of metal domes. Visitors are invited to swing the metal domes to create their own composition.
