New Hampshire-based artist Soo Sunny Park has collaborated with composer Spencer Topel to create 'Capturing Resonance', a captivating site-responsive installation for deCordova's Window Gallery (Sep 18, 2011 – Jul 29, 2012). The natural light fills the gallery space with rainbow hued shadow that shifts position over time. Using acrylic Plexiglas squares, Park created this undulating sculpture by attaching thousands of acrylic Plexiglas squares into chain link fencing cells.
[box]As visitors proceed through the interstitial – or in-between – space, motion sensors in the installation respond by activating different auditory ‘states’ that vary in both intensity and frequency. Layering an audio dimension onto Capturing Resonance, Topel blends whispering chords, soft tonal washes, and elongated instrumental sounds in a continuous and ever-changing composition that responds to human interaction. Depending on the number of people in the space, the musical states increase or decrease accordingly, and create a site-responsive installation. + [/box]
