AN INTERACTIVE DRUMMING EXPERIENCE
“Impact” is an interactive art installation displaying what people can achieve when they work together. Four drums are attached to sound-reactive LED strips. In the center is a rectangular pillar with graphics on each side: A Polar Bear, Beluga Whale, Snowy Owl and Arctic Wolf. These four animals are on the verge of extinction due to climate change. As the drums are hit, it sends a wave of blue light toward the pillar, eventually illuminating all four sides. The pillar will shine brightly if everyone works together to play the four drums simultaneously. At this time, you have four people focused very intently on their impact on these represented creatures, making them think of the impact they may have through their daily lives on the animals’ existence.
Impact will be constructed of upcycled plywood, LED strips, weatherproof reusable drums, acrylic sheets, vinyl and screws.
