Otherness | Misc. Projects of the Week

Otherness this week focuses on sound art installations as playful urban interventions.

PLAY IT ONE MORE TIME FOR ME ' LA VILLE FUMEE'
a sound art installation that works on hand made cigars and refers to the history of Eindhoven city, once the largest cigar-producing city in Europe


LULLABY FACTORY 
by Studio Weave
transforming a building facade into a sound installation that spans 10 stories high and 105 feet look with pipes that twist and turn throughout the piece; the sound can be heard when people put their ear up to certain listening pipes or by tuning into a special radio station
  
FORGOTTEN SONGS 
by Michael Thomas Hill
an installation of 110 empty birdcages suspended in the air that play the songs of fifty birds that once lived in central Sydney before colonization and urbanization of the area; the sounds change from day to night
