This year I was commissioned to design custom speakers for an exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Artist Phillip Worthington’s Shadow Monsters is an interactive multimedia work which utilizes audience participation, video and audio. The unique challenges of this project were to incorporate three separate sound systems in the MFAH’s glorious Cullinan Hall, with it’s fifty-feet ceilings and marble floor. Steamboat coordinated with the MFAH build team to determine the architectural requirements, then we created custom cabinetry and finally tuned the system with some simple audio processing units.
Shadow Monsters is open from May 23 – September 20.
