Sound and light artist Craig Colorusso, based in Boston, describes what he does quite succinctly on his blog: “Sometimes I make stuff you can hear. Sometimes I make stuff you can see.” On his website there’s a slightly more elaborate description: “…Exploring the intersection of sound, light, and space through sculpture since 2000. His installations consist of wood, metal, fabric, and electronics.”

His installation Cubemusic is made up of six aluminum cubes with cut-out shapes that light filters through, much in the way a child’s magin lantern does. The lights rotate and the intensity varies. In addition to the light, the installation emits an “eerie droning sound” referred to as Cubemusic by Colorusso.

Cubemusic will be on exhibit at East Prospect in Arkansas from December 6th through the 8th as part of a group show. For those of us far from Arkansas, you can get a peek at Cubemusic in the short video below:
