Aeolus, by Bristol, UK, artist Luke Jerram is looking for a new home.
Aeolus is a giant stringed musical instrument, an acoustic and optical pavilion designed to make audible the silent shifting patterns of the wind and to visually amplify the ever changing sky.
Pics, sound, and video available at the link.
This guy has quite a diverse output. I came to his website via a link to pictures of his glass microbes.
Another music-related project is "Play me, I'm yours!" -- street pianos. "... more than 600 pianos have now been installed in cities across the globe, from New York to Sydney, bearing the simple instruction 'Play Me, I'm Yours'."
And another -- "Sky Orchestra" --
... an artwork designed to deliver music to sleeping people from out of the sky. A form of provocative urban art, Sky Orchestra questions the boundaries of public artwork, private space and the ownership of the sky.
Anyone experienced any of these?
Any other musical sculptures to link (including prior threads)?
(This sad story is all I find linked at Mudcat: Daily Mail article about ill-fated EFDSS-Lotto-funded sculpture project.)
