Studio PSK: Polyphonic Playground at The Museum of Arts and Design

Event description:

Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound is a multi-component exhibition featuring interactive installations, immersive environments, and performing objects that explore how the ephemeral and abstract nature of sound is made material. The Polyphonic Playground feature, a project by Studio PSK, is an abstract, monumental, climbing frame with swings, a slide, and monkey bars. Affixed with pads that emit electronic sounds and a warm blue glow at the lightest of touch, the piece will act as a giant 3D synthesizer for anyone who interacts with it. MAD has invited experimental choreographers to activate the piece, while engaging visitors to do the same.
