So, with another snowfall here at the studio yet again our thoughts turned to spring and the upcoming summer. With that in mind, we share with you this simple but evocative experience that could be at home at an art, science, or children’s museum.
21 Swings by daily tous les jours a design studio with a focus on participation. This piece takes what we what have as field have done countless times (musical stairs or giant keyboards) and adds a complexity element (different series of notes) and also adds the element of group participation, which can be sometimes hard in other musical experiences. It should be pointed out that this experience is part of the “empathiCITY, making our city together” exhibition at the 2013 biennale internationale design saint-etienne.
daily tous les jours has done some other interesting pieces that might be of interest. Check out the these:
The “On The Difficulty of Serving Tea” a piece where we can see a lot of connections to a variety of cultural as well as science topics
and “Machine à Turlute” which demonstrates another interesting physical musical collaborative experience and cultural exploration.
As always, let us know of other experience of the same ilk, or if we can inspire with you.
By the way, let’s go Spring! Come on, get here soon!
