DescriptionInteractive installation; "Cybraphon" at InSpace Gallery as part of the "Left to my own devices" exhibition
Cybraphon is the latest project from Edinburgh-based artist collective FOUND (Ziggy Campbell, Simon Kirby and Tommy Perman). Inspired by early 19th century mechanical bands such as the nickelodeon, Cybraphon is an interactive version of a mechanical band in a box. Consisting of a series of robotic instruments housed in a large display case, Cybraphon behaves like a real band. Image conscious and emotional, the band’s performance is affected by online community opinion as it searches the web for reviews and comments about itself 24 hours a day. Cybraphon is funded by the Alt-w Production Award administered by New Media Scotland and will be appear again during the 2011 Edinburgh Arts Festival from 4th August in InSpace Gallery (Inspace, Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB).
