Comments about freequent traveller from the interesting weblog of Tim Pritlove

“Freequent Traveller” is passive, relaxed and contemplative. The motion of a hammock animates text. Very flow,
extraordinary hypnotic and meditative, it seems for two reasons: getting a pleasant, engaging feedback without
any effort but swinging in the hammock. Being immersed in the stimulating synchronised loop of ones own physical
motion and perceived visual dynamics.
Through its synchronized visual activity it appears experiential, explorative, sensuous and playful. It is contiguous,
perceived motion is synchronized with visuals. Its use is intuitive, and overall feel “pull”. Interactions are continuous
and not in discreet steps; it is unencumbered, poetic, involving, engaging (hot), has cognitive (visual/texty) as well as
sensuous (feely) qualities and incorporates degrees of self recognition / perception because of its synchronization.
The content consists of statements from artists from all over the world about mobility, home and identity and raise
global awareness to a certain extent. Gestalt effects are achieved by the high feedback through synchronization of
perceived body movement and dynamic visuals. Freequent Traveller applies to multiple senses as orientation and visual.
Its nature is ephemeral.

I lived next to Sushu's Freequent Traveller installation for whole three days at the 20C3 and enjoyed it every minute.
It's very relaxing!
