Sun Boxes

Artist: Craig Colorusso

Neighborhood: Downtown Boston



Time Frame: Thursday, September 18, 2014 - Sunday, September 21, 2014


Sun Boxes are travailing solar powered sound installation. It’s comprised of twenty speakers operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels. There is a different loop set to play a guitar note in each box continuously. These guitar notes collectively make a Bb chord. Because the loops are different in length, once the piece begins they continually overlap and the piece slowly evolves over time.

The scheduled installation dates for Sun Boxes are as follows:

Copley Square, Thursday, September 18, 10:30 am-sundown

Dewey Square, Rose Kennedy Greenway, Friday, September 19, 10:30 am-sundown

Boston Common, Saturday, September 20, 10:30 am-sundown

The Children's Museum, Fort Point, Sunday, September 21, 10:30 am-sundown
