This project takes Ludwig Mies van der Rohes vision of Crown Hall as "universal space" to a new creative plateau by turning the entire interior into a giant musical instrument. Two sets of brass wires were strung from one wall to another, passing through existing lockers that were transformed into resonant chambers. The wires fanned out to the steel mullions and plate glass of the walls, with the length of each wire creating a different musical note. The group Mass Ensemble composed and performed the site-specific "Mies Piece," in which musicians rubbed their hands along the wires to set in motion vibrations that resonated against the materials of glass, steel and wood. As another aspect of the project, the same .85-gauge brass wire was hung from the ceiling and individually weighted with carpenters plumb bobs to suspend student artwork for the schools annual exhibition.
