Sound art, in which sound is used as a medium, is very much a part of the contemporary art landscape. Often used in conjunction with video, sculpture, electronics, and other modern and traditional media, sound art demands direct engagement with the viewer or listener.
A group of eight sound artists, collectively known as WSK, come together especially for the art fair. WSK is a take on the Tagalog slang word wasak meaning “shattered”. Specially created machines will showcase different types of sound and encourage viewer participation. The exhibition will kick off with a robot-relay orchestration of all the contraptions, operated by their makers. The interactive exhibit invites viewers to participate in producing sound by manipulating the machines themselves.
