Head to Kennedy Town this weekend and get set to be immersed in the interactive sound and light installation, PlayLoop.
Stuck for weekend plans? While our days off work are often taken up by hikes, brunches, beach days and more, we’re always on the lookout for new and exciting art exhibitions to check out too. So if you’re looking for something a little different to do, don’t miss PlayLoop, an interactive sound and light installation by Natalie Wong.
Created using over 1,000 LEDs and motion-activated sensors, PlayLoop allows participants to physically create a distinct sound using multiple audio loops in an interactive soundscape. The innovative installation is made up of twelve custom designed structures arranged in a circular formation, which mimic the face of a clock. When no motion is detected, the installation remains silent, but when visitors are close, the lights within each stem begin to change. Uniquely designed to encourage interaction, when participants place their hands over each stem an array of sounds and colours are emitted.
We not only love the fact that PlayLoop was produced by female creative director of Papersneaker Design Studio, Natalie Wong, but also that the exhibition can be perceived in multiple different ways. As the activation of different sounds and lights are constantly evolving and changing, each participant’s perception of PlayLoop will be different.
The immersive experience has been taking over the Hart Haus in Kennedy Town since mid-September, but now is your last chance to check out the exhibition. Tomorrow (Saturday, 28 September) is the last day of PlayLoop, and guests can select three time slots to come and experience it.
When: Saturday, 28 September, 6pm to 9pm
Where: Hart Haus, 3/F, Cheung Hing Industrial Building, 12P Smithfield Road, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong
How much: Free! Make sure to RSVP here.
