cevdet erek installation

The artist from Turkey had a simple request. He wanted to make music on found fencing materials and would incorporate audio tracks from the live performances to be played throughout the duration of the installation. To allow visitors to “play” along, the construction fencing had to be meticulously detailed to ensure it could support potential climbing weight of visitors. Of course all while ensuring it still had the proper sound and aesthetic of the artist.
