An imaginative installation is currently underway in a New Orleans neighborhood. The project, dubbed ‘Dithyrambalina’, takes salvaged materials to create a giant community music box complete with instruments built into the structure. Brooklyn-based artist Swoon has triumphed with this fantastic idea for a public, interactive sculpture, which not only invites the community to participate in collective music making, but creates a permanent sculpture that blends in with the neighborhood. Visitors to the house will bring the building to life by producing sound as they walk through or touch the different parts of the home adorned with instruments.
