A piece on Inhabitat from Moe Beitiks. We’ll have some news from Nick Vida and Brent Heyning’s talk at CalArts on designing the Solar Array and Lighting from the Crimson Collective’s Acension Soon!
Solely reliant on the sun for its power, the piece changes in synch with nature, offeringÂ visitors clear auditory cues into theÂ cycles that occurÂ over a normalÂ day.Â Each individual is stronglyÂ encouraged to wander the field andÂ experience theÂ evolution ofÂ music in relation to their positionÂ within the space, as well as the intensity of the sunlight â€“ the Sun Boxes willÂ adjust to theÂ light accordingly, andÂ stop playing music when the sun sets. Given the variation in volume and sound, eachÂ personÂ isÂ able to create their own experience specific to theÂ path they take within the space.
