Universal Everything and You, new commission at the Science Museum Media Space, by Universal Everything.

The first work, 1000 Hands is created by contributions from the public through a smart phone app. In the gallery space it takes the form of a circular projection onto multiple screens, with each one showing an individual artwork generated by app users.  Presence, the second work, is a collaboration with the LA Dance Project and has been created by using motion captured performances of dancers which will be played back with evolving digital ‘costumes’.

Hidden among the trees of an Italian forest, Bruno has been building swings, slides, seesaws, gyroscopes and roller-coasters for the last forty years!

I’ve written about music in the playground before, but this is by far the biggest and nicest one so far.

21 Balançoires (21 Swings) is a giant collective instrument, a game where together we achieve better things than separately.

When in motion, each swing in the series triggers different notes and, when used all together, the swings compose a musical piece in which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation.”
