Murmuration

Squidsoup returns to SMoCA with a site-specific artwork that will use a networked data system to connect hundreds of lights and audio sources, creating a responsive data swarm.

Nov 7, 2019 - May 1, 2020

Squidsoup returns to SMoCA with a site-specific artwork that will use a networked data system to connect hundreds of lights and audio sources, creating a responsive data swarm. During the daytime, Murmuration will offer a harmonious auditory experience, but when the sun goes down, a dynamic audiovisual experience will swirl around the Museum like its namesake—a term for a flock of starlings whirling in unison through the sky.

Mark your calendar for the Squidsoup artist talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 7. You can learn more about Squidsoup on CanalConvergence.com.

After the success of “Ocean of Light: Submergence,” the Museum wants its audience to be a part of bringing Murmuration by Squidsoup to SMoCA and will be launching its first crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter. There will be various levels of support, but one of the main rewards for donating is the ability to sponsor a light in Murmuration. The campaign will launch on October 1 and run through October 31, 2019 and the Museum’s goal is to raise $5,000. Visit our Kickstarter page to learn more and make a donation.
