The white fabric rises and falls continously, seemingly due to a draught in the enclosed space but in fact through a convoluted yet intricate system of pulleys and ropes powered by a few dozen swings that visitors sit and play on. Talk about bringing out the kid in us!
While Ms. Hamilton's motivation behind the installation is rather high brow (read here), I love participatory art and couldn't get enough of the swings especially whilst trying to work out which part of the curtain I was manipulating as I swung back and forth.

But if you are unable to visit, here's a short video of the installation:
