Graduate students Bettina Bloc, Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg, Olivia Robinson, and Amy Scarfone of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York present Knock-Knock, an interactive installation. This collaborative project evokes contemporary communications networks using cardboard and copper wire. Knock-Knock is a network of suspended cardboard boxes, linked by contact microphones that will function both as pickups and drivers, transmitting sound across the box network through the cardboard filters. The contact microphones will be 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.

April 22- May 8, Mon- Sun 10am - 7pm. Opening Reception Fri, April 22 6-9 pm.
675 West Kendall St. in the Vertex Building at Kendall Square. Just off of Third St. Near the Kendall T stop. Follow the signs once on site.
