Dutch artist Jeroen Bisscheroux’s latest installation engages one of the senses that we often take for granted: hearing. Located on the Vincent van Gogh College in Assen, the Netherlands, the artwork, called TOON, comprises three giant maroon-colored conical horns. The horn-shaped acoustic structures are connected together by tubes and joined at the center by a seat, where the listener can sit and listen to different sounds emanating from three different locations on campus. There are sounds of people playing from the nearby sports fields, passersby from the adjacent park and gymnasium, as well as the sounds of people and children leaving school.
