‘House of Pain’ is a building-sized light sculpture that reacts to your screams, yells and shouts. It is housed within Zenith House, a former dental college. You step inside an intimate space on the ground floor. When you scream, your outburst is instantly translated into a moving composition of light and colour. This will be played across the building facade outside, and therefore be visible to a sizeable stretch of Borough High Street. You are welcome to be loud for as long as you need to be.
The loudness of your outburst will determine the size of the light composition, so if you are very loud, the entire building will light up. Your other vocal characteristics are also measured, which means that the composition is unique to your voice.
House Of Pain has been commissioned by Merge Festival 2013 as part of it's 'Bankside Transformed' program.
