SoundLab: A youth-led media experiment with artist group Invisible

In the fall of 2012, Elsewhere collaborated with artist group INVISIBLEWeaver Academy, and Guilford College on SoundLAB, a mobile visual artwork and instrument composed of obsolete technology. SoundLAB provided a collaborative space for students to explore the role technology plays in daily life through experiments in digital storytelling and performance. The project launched September 5 and culminated with a performance at Weaver Fest on October 5th in downtown Greensboro’s Festival Park. To see how the project unfolded, visit our project blog here:

INVISIBLE is a mechanical instrument research and performance group composed of Mark Dixon, Bart Trotman and others.

SoundLAB is made possible through an Arts in Education Grant provided by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
