The Invisible Wall, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.
Tough Art Residency, Summer 2011
What if you could see, hear and feel beyond the walls of a museum?
The Invisible Wall is an art installation that exists in two museums, in two different countries, at the same time. The Childrenâ€™s Museum of Pittsburgh and Maloka childrenâ€™s museum in BogotÃ¡ Colombia, are the home of this art project. It seeks to open a window of imagination across physical boundaries in the real world, creating connections between visitors in these two places. This art project stretches across 2,534 miles, as visitors engage in a playful exchange that collapses the distance between them.
The keyhole contains a Â camera and screen that facilitate the exchange, using real-time video streaming.Â This project was developed during an artist residency with the Childrenâ€™s Museum of Pittsburgh, Summer 2011.
