“Archway” was installed in Dumbo, Brooklyn on Friday, June 21st 2013 using 16 stretched and tuned lengths of piano wire. The wires—up to 850 feet long—were stretched around the DUMBO Archway of the Manhattan Bridge, functioning as both a mechanical sound installation and a sculptural/architectural work.
The wires in Archway were stretched directly from the bridge itself, the passing traffic and trains vibrating and resonating the wire for extended lengths. Other wires were strung from nearby lamp poles and strummed by automated mechanical beaters creating shifting harmonic overtones in the resonant space.
