Exhibition Details

During September of 2007, Jen Lewin’s Long Harp visited Wired’s NextFest. Part of Jen Lewin’s Laser Harp Series, Long Harp is an indoor, 60 string light sculpture designed for public play. These harps have varied from art installations, to stage, and performance installations and large outdoor sculptures. The Laser Harp Series is an evolution of immersive installations using movement and laser light to trigger sound. The Long Harp makes up a part of the largest Laser Harp collection in the world.
