The inspiration for this work was the wonderful chiming watches that they discovered while touring the Swiss watch factory Audemars Piguet, commissioners of the project. This experience made them to realized that they could make a “big chiming time sculpture.”
Their site-specific work titled HALO, is in the form of a 13-foot tall and 33-foot-wide cylinder that converts subatomic data into a visual and aural work producing an acoustic manifestation of particles colliding.

China Blue

China Blue is an award winning international artist whose current work focuses on the brain. Brainwaves of individuals, sensed through her customized EEG software, control the light and sound of an interactive sculpture and also dynamically create personal mind produced drawings. Over the past two decades she has created sound art works that focus on researching and developing data sonification. This has lead to discovering the hidden acoustics imbedded in the iron of the Eiffel Tower, submerged in Venice’s water or encased in NASA’s Vertical Gun chamber. She is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Engine Institute.
