Asked to bring a number of new pieces and some larger floor-fillers, the engagement and play on show was vibrant and beautiful. Pieces exhibited;
HOOPLA – A large sound sculpture for…playing with! Raise “Hoopla” above your head & experience spatial sounds as the whirring effect orbits you on an infinite journey. Hold “Hoopla” with a friend & share the spinning sensation…can you silence the madness?
FAB – Make the chiming ball sing n’ ring as it travels throughout the beautiful maze. Handles each end make this sculpture addictive & fun…You are in control!
REVOLUTION – Work out the best way to generate amazing noises from this hand held sculpture. Once revved up, how long can you hold on as the sound is amplified, accelerates and intensifies!? Exciting, vibrant & intense!
HELTER – SKELTER – Chiming spheres clatter through this ludicrous ride, landing with a crash! A noisy, madcap sound sculpture inspired by magical music & traditional mayhem.
