1 acoustic music box
1 electronic music box
60 sheets music box tape
6 3d printed mouthpieces
Concept: The music box is re-imagined to serve a dual purpose as a body modification and a form of codified communication. Performers stationed around the galleries perform various tasks at specified times while, at times, interacting with digital media via sensory input. The performance is supplemented by a media document (in the form of an iBook) which guides the viewer through 4 stages of the performance and encourages them to interact with the performers in order to change their behavior [mutation]. The iBook is available here.
