I was able to visit a fascinating art installation yesterday and wanted to share it with you.
Now, I have to confess, I am not a big fan of art “instillations”. It seems to me that a lot of the time they are things like a pile of sand in a room…(yes that is all) or a stack of shipping pallets on the floor.
But this one was different!
Kioro Kawai and Aaron Sherwood had created a series of hanging spheres which hung from cords. They were wired for sound and light. It was an instillation at Burning Man, so I knew it is going to be a little “out there”. And it was! As the viewer/ interactor walked among them and touched the balls they let up in different colors and played low pitched sounds (kind of like whale talk).
We went in the evening and there were small children slowly walking through the piece touching the ball and activating all the lights and sounds. They were mesmerized….so were we!
The piece seems to be traveling around so if you get a chance to see it somewhere, go for it. Its name is Micro. Here is a link to more photos;
I hope you get a chance to enjoy it.
As always, I love to get your comments and observations.
