Public installations are often designed to be looked at but not touched. So how do we encourage the journey from ‘observer’ to ‘participant’ of these works? In this talk Glen Walton talks about the interactive installations created by Playable Streets that invite participants to become musical collaborators.
Glen will discuss an iterative approach to developing new work that harnesses the spirit of DIY. He will cover some of the nuts and bolts of getting work out of the workshop and into the public space, and the importance of collaboration with other artists, engineers and the community.
This forum will took place on 18 July. A recording of the talk is available below.
