The soundscapes of Prairie Avenue and the Arts Incubator collide to create an interactive installation. Microphones are placed in rooms throughout the Arts Incubator and on the façade of the building, picking up the noises of everyday life. These sounds are remapped through organic pulses of light that grow, interact, and linger even after the sounds themselves have stopped. Make some noise to change the map.

This project was made possible by SAIC's Earl & Brenda Shapiro Center for Research & Collaboration, the Deptment of Architecture, Interior Architecture and Designed Objects, and Arts Incubator.
