Sonos Playground Deconstructed
In the Nam June Paik Room/HBO Production Lab
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Spectacle: The Music Video
Sonos Playground Deconstructed (2013) is a site-specific installation, designed by Aramique, Red Paper Heart, and Fake Love, that aims to bring minimalist art to life as an immersive music video environment. Sonos Playground was originally installed in a 250 sq. ft shed at the Sonos Studio at the 2013 SXSW festival. At Museum of the Moving Image, the designers of Sonos Playground Deconstructed have re-imagined the experience using five detached walls suspended above a reflective floor.
Visitors can watch a visualization of the music playing in the room projected onto the surrounding walls. Through motion-capture technology, visitors can interact with and manipulate the visuals through movement.
