long string bridge harp for 10×10
Martin Amphitheater beneath the Walnut Street Bridge, Chattanooga
April 16-21, 2012

A long string harp installed in the girders of a bridge. I made some of the hardware and framing joints for the resonator with a 3D printer. An Arduino generates a score by activating vibrating motors attached to the strings. Installation images are here.

Thanks to Tyler Cooney, Jesse Bruen, Paul Orlady, Katie Hudson and Dylan Orlady for their assistance in making and installing it. Thanks also goes to Kate Creason and Allie O’Connell for their enormous effort in organizing 10×10.
