Come In Here is a pulsating piece, intimidating from afar and comforting up close. It beckons the viewer to come inside and experience the waves of air moving between the metal slits. It is meant to draw the viewer in to experience that feeling of organic comfort (like the feel of soft wind) that does not seem possible from a industrial object.
I would prefer a small light from above that is not directed through the slits between the bars.
Very visual idea with a single speaker and microphone.
Speaker array used to direct sound.
Falling bouncy balls land on triggers that make a sound, either acoustic or analog.
