Knock-Knock, an interactive installation I created in collaboration with Bettina Bloc, Olivia Robinson, and Amy Scarfone, will open this Friday in the Boston Cyberarts Festival at Kendall Square. Knock-Knock evokes contemporary communications networks using cardboard and copper wire. This collaborative project is a network of suspended cardboard boxes, linked by contact microphones and drivers, transmitting sound across the box network through the cardboard filters. The contact microphones are precisely tuned so that tapped messages can travel short distances along the network or cycle around the ring, depending on the strength of the tap.

There will be a reception this Friday, April 22 6-9 p.m. Knock-Knock is in the Vertex Building at Kendall Square, just off of Third St. near the Kendall T stop.

More information about Knock-Knock is on the Knock-Knock web site.
