Part Ark, Part of Leytonstone Arts Trail: Installation sur le slinky

For years, I am interested in Slinkies sounds. Frances Bowman asked to be part of Part Ark, an week-end of exhibition in a park, as a sound artist. I though that I could wake up my slinkies.

Installation sur le slinky is an interactive installation using slinkies as source of sound. I did it years ago in Montréal, (Installation sur le slinky). But this one, in London, is partly inspired by Robin Whittle research. While I was doing my own research on the slinky (Le slinky, Instrument de musique) I worked with slinkies for performances (Sans Escalier) as well as installation (Installation sur le slinky).

This installation will feature a slinky as I used it in 'Sans Escalier' a piece for slinky solo.
