It looks like Swoon (interviewed) is in London at the moment judging from this piece seen on the streets by the good people at Hooked Blog. The wheatpasted image is modeled after the stunning Thalassa installation she created for the New Orleans Museum of Art back in June and is a marker for her upcoming show at Black Rat Projects next month. The Murmuration installation and show will open on December 1st and seeing that the NY-based artist is already in town preparing makes us excited to see what she has in mind for her fans across the pond.

For those in the Big Easy, make sure you catch performances of The Music Box at Prospect.2, New Orleans’ art biennale. The avant-garde musical performance and installation masterminded by Swoon features “purpose-built shacks and miniature houses made out of New Orleans’ beautiful architectural details and plentiful salvaged materials; built into in each structure is an invented instrument created by a sound artist. Visitors can interact with this musical shantytown’s singing walls, heartbeat-triggered percussion machine, organ staircase and weather sensitive oscillators.” This art event is the precursor to the upcoming Dithyrambalina project that we wrote about previously.
