The Music Box
The Music Box (2011-2012), was an interactive installation comprised of shanties situated on an empty residential lot in New Orleans. The structures were built from the salvaged remains of a creole cottage that stood on the site since the late 18th Century. Built into each structure was an invented instrument created by a sound artist. This installation was created with contributions from dozens of artists and musicians, including the artist Swoon and renowned performers such as Thurston Moore.
