For the past few months we've had the great pleasure of hosting Luisa Beck as an Artist in Residence in the Tinkering Studio. Luisa is an audio producer and storyteller, collaborating with some of the greatest podcasts and radio stations around, and we could hardly believe our luck when she said she wanted to create stories about the experiences of people tinkering in the Tinkering Studio.
Luisa spent weeks in the Tinkering Studio, listening, recording, and interviewing kids and adults while they built Chain Reactions, made stop-motion animations, and played with exhibits in the South Gallery of the museum. At the end, she had tape. A lot of tape. So much so that she created three separate pieces about the work that happens on the museum floor. The piece below is the first one she started working on: I love that it is Luisa's own take on the work we do in the Tinkering Studio, yet we all felt it reflects the way we ourselves think of our work beautifully. I love it, and am proud to share it here.
This audio piece was produced by Luisa Beck with Sound Design by Katie McMurran.
