Hundreds of Wind Chimes Hang From a Rainbow of Ribbons


Currently showing at the 18th Biennale of Sydney is a gorgeous installation consisting of hundreds of bamboo wind chimes hanging from rows of colored ribbons. Called Knock On The Sky Listen To The Sound, it’s by artist Tiffany Singh and it’s on view in a cavernous hall of Pier 2/3 at nearby Walsh Bay.

Singh invites visitors to be a part of her artwork. The chimes are meant to be taken home, decorated and then returned, to be reintegrated into the installation. You can pick one up from August 7 through August 14 or until the chimes run out.

Not only is this installation beautiful, imagine listening to it! As one visitor states, “From the outside, the bamboo chimes are barely audible, yet within the sandstone walled structure, accessed by a small opening that requires the viewers to crouch on entry, the hundreds of chimes clatter loudly with the movement of the wind. On a sunny day, the dark shadows cast by the grid of coloured chimes and reverberating sound completely surrounds and involves the viewer.”



The 18th Biennale of Sydney will go on until September 16, 2012. For more information on this particular installation, check out the BOS website.
