A sculpture responds to light and motion to create sound.


What is it?

Sounding Box #11 is an interactive sound sculpture. As viewers approach and cast shadows on the installation, strings on the sculpture vibrate, generating acoustic sound. Participants can improvise and interact, controlling the sound through motion.

Why did we make it?

The purpose of this sculpture is to create harmonious sounds to complement the surrounding environment, and to allow each participant to create their own unique sonic experience.

This piece was a custom commission, designed for the littleBits Electronics office space in the Starret Lehigh building in Chelsea, Manhattan.
