Handle with Care | Tom Gurin

For the last exhibition of the 2022-23 cultural season, composer and artist in residence Tom Gurin invites us to Handle with Care — an exhibition exploring the relationship between touch and sound.

Handle with Care is an interactive sound sculpture installation that explores the acoustics and psychoacoustics of haptic feedback. The space is filled with a series of gently vibrating sculptures. When touched, the pitch and tone of each sculpture changes depending on where and how pressure is applied. Audience members are invited to interact with the sculptures by using their hands or other objects to change the sound.

The opening will take place on Wednesday, June 7 as part of Art-Hop-Polis.
