Julian Day of Super Critical Mass led 100 2nd year Architecture students studying the Design of Performance venues  in a series of acoustic workshops that culminated in a sound art performance in the iconic Frank Gehry designed Chau Chak Wing Building.

The students flooded the public spaces of the Gehry building with a subtle yet rich sound field, following simple social instructions that resonate with the building’s diverse materials and porous design.
The performance was followed by a panel discussion with artist Julian Day, Lecturer School of Architecture Joanne Kinniburgh, musician and Director of NOW now Festival Claire Cooper. Facilitated by ABC broadcaster Stephen Adams.

 

This performance took place on Wednesday 8th August 2018
