This is a highly participatory experience, urging visitors to form human chains to create a unique and ever-changing musical performance. Metal chains hanging in the gallery space invite visitors to form links in a musical chain.
Have the sounds of your body chopped up, stretched and mangled while immersive visuals shift around the walls. BODY SNATCHER is an audiovisual installation by artists Alex Dowling and Sinéad Meaney that captures and manipulates sounds that visitors create using their bodies. Choose from two themes - toxicity or harmony - and experience an audiovisual display in which the sounds you make are converted into an ever-changing, live sonic sculpture. Elements of infrasound or 'soundless music' are also used to inspire an authentic cross-modal engagement beyond interactive and audiovisual realms.
This triptych is a work by the artist Chaja Hertog made in collaboration with Nir Nadler, and is recreated for the first time in New York City. The InstruMen perform a haunting musical experience created by their physical integration with the instruments they are playing. By slowly moving their bodies the performers build up a soundscape that would be impossible to recreate using conventional instruments. Prepare to be moved and disturbed by this powerful audiovisual work.
You are able to hear due to the way your brain collects and processes the sound waves in the air. Physical motion is turned into chemical signals inside the ear that are sent to the brain. Percussive bones, rippling hairs and moving liquid. Hear, Hear—a collaboration between an artist and a scientist—has created this playful exploration of the world of human hearing.
