KUAF Arts Beat: Light, Sound and Boxes Blur the Line Between Artist and Audience

Inspired by a desire to make sound interactive, artist Craig Colorusso created “Sun Boxes” and “CUBEMUSIC.” Both installations are up now at Fenix Gallery in Fayetteville as part of their new exihibit “Our Universe.” 

“I loved going on tour, but there’s always that barrier between the audience and the performer. So I’ve always wanted to create something that didn’t have that,” says Colorusso about the inspiration for the two pieces. “I wanted to make something that people could literally feel like they’re part of.”

 

In addition to “Sun Boxes” and “CUBEMUSIC," Colorusso also performs from his work "Butterfly Cathedral," written for bowed guitar this Friday, June 21, at the Trillium Salon Series Block Party in South Fayetteville.
