Susie MacMurray - Resonance

I happened upon this amazing installation in a deconsecrated church in Brighton a couple of weeks ago. The artist is Manchester based Susie MacMurray.

The piece, called Resonance, is made from thousands of pieces of orchestral sheet music and is really quite amazing and awe-inspiring to look at. It's just so BIG. It overwhelms you.

I also watched a video of the artist talking of the work. One thing she said that struck me was that it takes a variety of people to make a piece of music come alive (an orchestra) and that it took a group of people to make the installation.

Resonance is open until 26th August 2013 at Fabrica, Brighton.
