I have no idea what to make of this. I only know that I want to see it with my own eyes.
The Brooklyn-based artist Swoon has joined forces with New Orleans Airlift to create a landmark sculpture in New Orleans. Dithyrambalina will look like a house, but sound like a musical instrument. A growing group of local and national sound artists are experimenting with interactive instruments that can be built into its walls and floorboards allowing visitors and musicians to bring the house to life through their touch. Last fall they debuted prototypes in a temporary installation called THE MUSIC BOX, A Shantytown Sound Laboratory.
The photos here are incredible.
In some small way, it reminds me of Tracey Snelling’s Woman on the Run.
