ICFF 2011: Speaker System Crafted From Salvaged Materials
Jinsheng Wang returned to ICFF to debut another unique audio installation.
Sculptor/Designer Jinsheng Wang caught our attention at last year's ICFF with his collection of turntables converted to fountains and zen rock gardens. This year he was back at the show with a follow up project called ‘Gypsy Wheel' which is a working speaker system built from found objects.
I have pursued this project because it brings together three ideas: the wheel is a metaphor for a journey, the drum is about an awakening, and lastly, the set mimics a stage for music and dance. During the show, Charles Lloyd's Forest Flower, Keith Jarrett's Changeless and Jack Dejohnette's Oneness will spin out of the Gypsy Wheels.
