Spy Hop Productions, Utah’s only youth media arts center, looks at the idea of “collaboration” through its new exhibition at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA). A digital media experiment, SONIC SQUEEZE invites visitors to play an interactive game that only gets better when you work together.
Created by Spy Hop Productions music, audio and game design instructors with input from Spy Hop students, SONIC SQUEEZE is a 21st century mash-up of video games, drum machines and tone makers. Play the game to create sounds from one of three stations – but work together with other participants to get all three games to create your own song.
“SpyHop provides cutting-edge educational opportunities for youth in our community, especially in the kinds of new forms of media and transmedia that are so important now in the world of contemporary art,” said Adam Price, executive director of UMOCA. “We are delighted to be able to give our visitors an opportunity to see new work by tomorrow’s artistic leaders today.”
Kasandra VerBrugghen, executive director of Spy Hop Productions, said, "We're thrilled to be back at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. All of Spy Hop’s programs blend together art and creative technology and its great to have an opportunity to show off some of the innovative projects we’re working on.”
SONIC SQUEEZE exhibits through March 24. Hours vary daily, see www.utahmoca.org for more information.
