Yuri Suzuki's Color Chasers
on 05 December 2014
In his 2013 installation “Looks Like Music,” sound artist and designer Yuri Suzuki invited the public to create their own musical compositions by drawing on the ground with colored markers. An ensemble of five small, robotic Color Chasers—each unique in sound output—would then translate the drawings into computer-like sounds as they rolled over the colorful tracks, resulting in a rich, futuristic song accompanied by a wacky visual piece created from the public's scribbles. NYC's MoMA recently selected Suzuki’s interactive musical art to join its collection.
