The pendulum project was recently installed at Augustana University. Located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the University now houses this new Foucault pendulum inside the Froiland Science Complex. Tucked into a three story stairwell, the pendulum features a multi-level, 16-color terrazzo floor inside the pendulum pit. But the real acrobatics happened with the installation of the pendulum itself and the slinky-like “hoop cone” that surrounds the pendulum’s swinging cable. The project is a collaboration with artist Scott Parsons, a member of the Augustana faculty.
