Phantom Railings

Resumen del libro

libro Phantom Railings

Phantom Railings is an interactive sound sculpture by Chilean artist Catalina Pollak that uses the movements of pedestrians to evoke the ghost of a lost iron fence. The site of the intervention is a garden in Bloomsbury, London, whose railings were removed as part of the 1940s war effort, and never replaced – leaving a line of iron stumps along the surrounding wall. Using sensor-based acoustic devices, the installation makes evident the absence of railings by playing the familiar sound produced by running a stick along an iron fence. The pitch of each railings sound is set to vary according to the pedestrians speed and proximity, allowing the phantom railings to be played and tuned by the movements of passers-by. This book features an interview with the artist.
