Featured Story:

  • “The Grove” (pictured above) is a traveling installation by Los Angeles-based artist Sean Duffy that is a uniquely participatory project consisting of 18 matching, variable-speed phonographs, each linked to 20 speakers suspended from the ceiling. A wood crate of vintage LPs by instrumental and vocal performers located at each turntable allows participants to change the sound environment interactively. With close to 400 speakers, the installation creates an immersive, orchestral canopy of evolving compositions. “The Grove” is installed at the Arcadia University Art Gallery in Glenside, Pa., just outside of Philadelphia, through December 20, 2007.
