About

Soundbox is a gallery installation that challenges our perception of sound. Using a contact mic to record individual sounds within the Whitman College soundscape and LittleBits to build a touch sensor drawer machine, Soundbox invites the viewer to experience an everyday action, opening a drawer, juxtaposed with unfamiliar sounds.

A collaboration with Grace Pyles and Albert Schueller. November 2014.
