Installed summer of 2014 and designed by artists Luke Crawley and Quincy Owens. This interactive art installation applies the idea to how humans form social identities and belief systems based on interpretation of large ideals and shared experiences. The larger sculptures, in the center of each hexagon, play music composed entirely from audio samples (sometimes digitally manipulated) recorded from “playing” the sculptures themselves. Along with the music, there are recordings of people responding their own interpretations of the following themes: love, hate, success, failure, forgiveness, and isolation.
Commune is located at the Trailhead at Trailhead Park in West Lafayette.
