This responsive structure is the combined efforts of students studying master programs — “Interior Design – Spatial Communication” and “Sound Art – Composition” at University of Applied Sciences Mainz and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, respectively. Using digital LED light and sound, the collaborative piece allows visitors to interactively transform the sculptural light installation into performance art. Resonate is comprised of an intertwining stretch of white elastic strings forming morphed cylinders that seem to mimic cooling towers in an alternate, digital universe. The complex string structure illuminates in the dark and reacts audibly when plucked, similar to a musical instrument. Check out the photos and video below.
