Dan Weber Presents "Marconi's Machines"

This installation opens September 28 and continues until November 10, 2018.The gallery will host a reception for Dan on Saturday, October 6 from 2 – 4 pm. Dan will be present at that time to guide visitors through ways to interact with the devices.
Nearing the end of his life and after a series of heart attacks, the radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi imagined a machine that would be able to retrieve all sound that had ever been made. All of the laughter, crying, birds singing, storms raging, horns honking, every sound.
This exhibit, Marconi’s Machines, asks the question; If you possessed such a machine, what sound would you most desire to bring back? A loved one’s voice, a piece of music, a day that changed the world?
