A radically inclusive, participatory project empowering us all to engage with music and art through interactive play.
HEXADECA is a participatory work empowering people from all walks of life to engage with music and art through multi-generational, all-inclusive play. This architecturally designed, music making playground draws upon sensor activated music triggering technology and collaborations with leading Australian musicians to invite the public to become the conductor. As the audience spin in custom constructed fiberglass seats they unknowingly activate portions of a musical score, only revealing the track in its entirety when each seat is occupied.
HEXADECA encourages multi-generational, all-inclusive play, because regardless of your physical ability, age or culture, joy and play are human.
