Constructing Resonance

Kasho Chualan (CA)

This sculpture is an architectural instrument – a piece of steel found at a construction site. During the process, other materials were scavenged such as piano screws and piano strings. It is constructed using the same material as the resonant body (steel). Inspired by Vitruvius and Pythagoras, it takes a simple approach architecturally and sonically, creating tones through strings and tension. It can be interacted with through resonance, pitches, plucking. There will be lighting involved as well for the piece to be observed sonically and aesthetically.
