For the next month, visitors to New York City’s Storefront for Art and Architecture will be making music with an unlikely instrument: the gallery’s building. For his installation “007_Urban_Songline,” artist Allard van Hoorn carefully interlaced fishing line through Storefront’s uniquely-designed space to create a spiderweb-like maze for visitors to walk through. The lines act as the chords of a massive instrument that creates a musical translation of the gallery’s physical space, which van Hoorn painted a bright orange-red. Visitors play the chords, adding to an original score with every stroke. Hit the jump to see more of this intriguing interactive installation.
