We are excited to announce the opening of Secrets of Nature, a sound and light installation, on the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at Chelsea College of Arts.This interactive artwork allows the public to play four large umbrella structures as though they are musical instruments. Curated by artist and lighting designer Tupac Martir of Satore Studio, the installation uses cutting-edge technology called Mogees which turn physical objects into musical instruments by converting the vibrations that we make through touch, into sound.
The four large umbrellas enhanced with this technology will react to rain drops, wind, and visitors’ touch. These vibrations will alter the lighting and trigger music and sound composed by Plaid, These New Puritans, Luca C & Brigante and Bruno Zamborlin.
The work was exhibited earlier this year as part of the first annual New York Festival of Light (NYFOL), and will be open to the public in London until 24 January 2015.
