Originally developed with Andy Sternad for DesCours 2011, Drip was remixed and reconfigured for the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans’ Sound
Exhibition: June 25 – September 25, 2011
Excerpt from a review in the New Orleans Times-Picayune:
Architects John Kleinschmidt and Andy Sternad (whose Shallow Projects were featured at NolaVie’s May INCUBATE) designed the sound installation “Drip: The Music of Water” in the CAC’s sound room. The piece was inspired by the artists’ work with Waggonner & Ball Architects’ Dutch Dialogues initiative, which seeks to promote better water management in the city. The work brings awareness to water and to New Orleans’ underlying tensions with it, yet encourages a conversation that will hopefully promote solutions to the potential threat of water. Doing so will enable citizens to appreciate water as something that is beautiful, powerful, and part of the historic legacy of New Orleans, rather than as something to be feared.
