Swoon’s Dithyrambalina

Oh, Swoon. The Brooklyn-based artist is using the salvage from a destroyed Creole Cottage in New Orelans’ Bywater neighborhood to create the Dithyrambalina–a permanent, interactive scultpure that is a sort of musical instrument. She’s working with the New Orleans Airlift on this project, and this fall, kinectic artists will head downriver to New Orleans to build a temporary installation–The Music Box, A Shantytown Sound Laboratory, to test Dithyrambalina’s musical prototypes.

Donate to the Kickstarter for this project and you could get a thank you card embellished with wallpaper from the18th century Creole house that stood on the site of the Dithyrambalina.

  1. Swoon’s art is absolutely beautiful, I was lucky enough to stumble upon some during my trip to New Orleans. The Music Box just finished it’s run, and I can’t wait to see Dithyrambalina in all it’s glory.
