The two week Performative Design class was was part of ‘Human Harp’ an international collaborative research project, that functions as a touring lab.

The aim of the research project is to develop a clip-on sound interface for suspension bridges, that will enable pedestrians to “play the bridge” as though it were an instrument.

The students projects were developed as part of the Human-Harp international research tour, launched by artist Di Mainstone and kick-started by Queen Mary University of London and CIID. Human-Harp is an open-source R&D collaboration, bridging skills and sharing knowledge between think tanks and innovation labs around the globe.
