Sun Boxes, a solar powered sound installation will be in 5 different state parks in Vermont. July 5th-August 5th 2012.

Sun Boxes is a solar powered sound installation.  It's comprised of twenty speakers operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels.  There is a different loop in each box programmed to play a different guitar note continuously.  These guitar notes make a Bb chord.  Because the loops are a different length, once the piece begins they continually overlap and the piece slowly evolves over time.

Sun Boxes creates space; it's an environment to enter and exit at will.  The footprint this space occupies is similar to that of a city.  A metropolis.  It's a burst of technology in the middle of nature.  Unlike most cities I've been to, it does not just take over the space.  Rather Sun Boxes interfaces with the environment and collaborates with nature.  It is the perfect combination of technology and and nature that create art, an environment and a metropolis.  

The environment plays such a big role with Sun Boxes, I am always looking for new spaces. State Parks are the epitome of Public Space so I’d like to bring Sun Boxes to Vermont and see what it’s like. 5 different state parks in the month of July. 

The Vermont State Parks offer a unique experience for Sun Boxes. But all this will cost money. With your generous contributions I will be able to take this piece to the next level. In return I will be documenting this trip with my team and we will be looking forward to sharing our experiences. However much money you can afford I will send you something nice, a unique detail from the trip. Thank You.
