Industrial design student Hyeonil Jeong has installed a number of noise making devices in New York subways with exhortations for passers by to play the instruments as part of his ‘Jamming NYC’ thesis. Each of these noisy novelties compliment one another and are arranged to maximise a percussive jamming session. In so doing they enable people to have a different interaction with their environment and their fellow commuters and citizens.

According to Hyeonil, the point is to allow people to have a different relationship with both friends and strangers outside of any formal activity.
