Andy Zimmermann. Three Sculptures and Two Installations, One with Sound

"The story I would most like to tell about this show is about how much I have enjoyed watching viewers enter the the gallery and walk toward my piece.  I programmed the piece so that the sound frequencies and string vibrations are different every time someone triggers it. Some people see the strings vibrating before they actually hear anything, some hear faint, high pitches coming from the back fliers, and some hear a sudden crashing sound that can be pretty startling. The way each person’s attention gets drawn in to the piece, and each person’s reaction, becomes an important part of the sculpture. I’ve seen people do double-takes as though they can’t quite believe what they are seeing. I’ve seen people laughing and jumping up and down, waving their arms. A lot of people get a big smile when they realize they are communicating with the sculpture, and it is responding to them."
