The 42 swings that have been set up in the 55,000-square-foot space boast a giant billowing white curtain that separates the hall. The curtain is controlled by the back and forth swaying motion of people on swings.

The creator Ann Hamilton has a space only for her, where she can get the feedback from the reactions of the visitors, one way to evaluate her work.

This nostalgic event brings us the human connectivity and take us for a journey in the past. Unexpected journey that can make you “work” alone or with the other visitors, which will make the curtain swing faster.
