The Museum of Arts and Design's current exhibition, "Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound" features three floors of interactive installations, immersive environments, and performing objects that explore the ephemeral and abstract nature of sound. This kind of art usually sounds awful, but this show was actually really good, thanks in part to the KEF speakers and headphones (they are also one of the show's sponsors) used in many of the pieces. The Sonic Arcade exhibition is open now and runs through February 25, 2018 at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
Knotted Gate Presence Weave, Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy's room-size sculpture with lights and interactive elements change sound as you walk through the piece. Little kids loved this one; it's a very trippy experience.
"Polyphonic Playground," designed by Studio PSK offers a wide assortment of sound producing elements you can walk through and touch to make and control sound. Your five-year-old can touch everything and still have fun.
Naama Tsabar's work converts an entire wall of a gallery into an electric guitar, with speakers embedded along the top of the wall. Visitors can move a long the wall to strum, pluck, and otherwise play this work. It's the best piece in the show.
