Wall-Residuals of Violence, prototype for Purgatorio (Journeying La Divina Commedia, 2016)

_mg_5071Assembled with bricks made of sand that are engineered to disintegrate with exposure and human touch, the wall is connected to contact microphones. When viewers touch the structure and the objects embedded in it, it will create various sounds and give the sensation of it responding/communicating with its environment. LED lights embedded into the resin and sand will be programmed to slowly pulse randomly and will also response to touch.
