The closing night of SonicPLACE, an innovative site-specific sound installation and exhibition created by Professor Jennifer Parker with the Digital Arts and New Media Program (DANM) Mechatronics Project team and OpenLab at the University of California Santa Cruz. As part of a research collaboration between artists and scientists, SonicPLACE activates place through participation with sound, mechanical devices and interactive play at the Chronicle Building in San Francisco.
The installations react to light, movement, and sound, capturing data and producing a tangible residue of the imprint we leave just by being human. SonicPLACE takes over the thorough-ways where people pass through: the front entryway, hallways, and even some of the windows of the building structure, involving both specific visitors to the site and random passers-by, and asking us, "How do we perceive our invisible connections to the world around us, and at what level are we even aware of them?" SonicPLACE aims to bring questions like these to the forefront of our consciousness, and show us that even when we believe we're moving in isolation, we are still interacting with the world as a whole.
