Baby Love: spinning teacup musical bumpercars


Ohhh baby! Artist Shu Lea Chang's new work, titled Baby Love was on exhibition during ISEA 2006 from August 7-13th. The installation, which is comprised of several spinning teacups (like the Disneyland ride!) allows for the exchange and remix of uploaded MP3s. Taking the teacups for a spin is kind of like bumper cars, but with a sonic twist. Each teacup is comprised of an autonomously moving unit, which participants are encouraged to board. As the wheel is turned, the teacup spins round and round, eventually colliding with one of the other units. When a "bump" is achieved between teacups, the musical track that plays during the ride (which is specific to each teacup) is mixed between riders. The result is zany and fun! If you missed Baby Love at ISEA you can always catch them later at the Chelsea Art Museum in New York City, opening November 30, 2006
