Progeny is an International Collaborative Project, featuring the work of Luke Aaron Clark (UK) and Bryce Hammond (USA) currently on display at the UCF Art Gallery. The exhibition focuses on an immersive architectural sound installation modeled after a Langstroth Beehive. There are ten partitions covered in acoustic paneling, with 48 microphones and 36 speakers that transmit every single sound originated in the space.
Progeny is the result of three years of research and partnership, working in concert with the agricultural community, structural engineers and sound experts.
In location, Progeny becomes an instrument or a platform for public interaction, artistic collaboration and performance, providing unique opportunities for the audience to experience and engage with the work.
