"The Singing Room is a place for anyone to sing freely and in public. The room has been built with the Shy Person in mind, allowing him or her to sing without being exposed to the assumed scrutiny of others. Visitors are invited to sing in a small sound proof room. As they sing, the musical instruments outside of the room abstractly interpret their singing. Each syllable pronounced by the singer is projected as musical and/or acoustic sounds. The installation is deliberately loud, further ensuring that that Shy Person cannot be heard." - Clocktower Gallery

Singing Room for a Shy Person was commissioned by Métamatic Research Initiative, Amsterdam, and exhibited at the Clocktower Gallery in NYC and the Museum Tinguely in Basel, Switzerland.
