Orchestra of Anxiety

Notes

A collection of instruments that deploy security and surveillance technologies in unusual and playful contexts, prompting visitors to reflect on their personal sense of security and their relationship with public fears (of petty crime, terrorism, etc.). The first instrument to be built is a steel harp with strings of razor wire, which requires the harpist to wear protective gauntlets to play it.
