Yukino Ohmura + Akira Matsuda + Kazunori Hori, “Singing Cobweb” Town Installations / Program chosen from “Open Call Project”

5/25(Sat) 10:00〜5/26(Sun) 18:00
Roppongi Hills West Walk 2F
[Participation fee]
“Singing Cobweb” is an interactive artwork made of wool thread, hand-woven into a shape of a giant spider web that plays classical music when touched by the visitors. The work is designed to produce sounds of different instruments depending on where the contact is made: the more people interact with the web, the more instruments are heard, coalescing into a fuller symphony. In an attempt to create a complete orchestra, the participants will find themselves captivated.
