Room for Score is a 1000-sq. ft. experimental music notation. It comprises a false floor that resembles staff paper, sounds sensors, and an amplifier. Over the course of the exhibition, the daily movements of gallery visitors and staff will mark and score the floor, producing an accidental composition to be interpreted and performed by musicians.

About the artist:

She received her BFA in interdisciplinary sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and has exhibited her work in numerous shows including a solo exhibition at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has also exhibited her work internationally in the Czech Republic, where she studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague with Dominik Lang.
