IT’S HOT. Is anyone else sick of 100 degree, 100% humidity days? In D.C., it seems like lately all anyone can talk about is 1) how hot it is and 2) how to cool off. I’ve found myself this summer looking more and more for indoor activities instead of sweating it out outside. Luckily, D.C. has a fantastic art scene that allows for ample opportunities to check out creative pieces and revel in some lifesaving A/C at the same time.
This past Saturday, I had the chance to check out SYNTH SERIES 005: REVERB in downtown D.C. The installation was a part of SYNTH SERIES: THE INTERSECTION OF MUSIC, SPACE, & ARCHITECTURE, created by TOKI -a group of two recent architecture graduates who transform public spaces with their colorful, three dimensional expressions of music. A bit of personal backstory about this exhibit: last summer, I set out to visit SYNTH SERIES 002, which was set up in a vacant warehouse, only to find that someone had unexpectedly cut it down! So I was so thrilled to hear that TOKI was doing another installation this summer.
It’s really something you’ve got to check out in person to get the full sensory experience of the work, but I tried to capture a bit on camera.
