Walking chimes

A collaboration by Taeyoon Choi and Christine Sun Kim
We created a hybrid of both bells and wind chimes, each activated by different people’s walks. We observed a number of local people walking on this very block, and rendered each person’s different rhythm, passing time with the wind chimes.
We invite you to press and hold the red button to listen to people passing time.


Based on the Future Proof performance.

Special thanks to Gwylim Johnstone and Fletcher Bach for help with the fabrication.

Exhibited at CTRL+ALT: A Culture Lab on Imagined Futures, organized by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center
