Melissa McGurgan’s Sound Panels and Chairs



Printmaking MFA student Melissa McGurgan made this fun installation with interactive sound elements. The microphones embedded in the panels and chairs are amplified throughout the space, creating an interesting sonic environment with percussive and tactile overtones. The exhibit will be up at the Chocolate Factory in Phoenix until the end of the month. Melissa’s website – Link, and more photos at my Flickr – Link.
