Here is a installation my cousins and I found last year when were around the South Ferry area.  The installation was called “Playing the Building” by artist David Burne.  It’s a pretty interesting installation.  I loved the space (the Battery Maritime Building) that it was in and the concept behind the installation was very cool.  There is a piano in the middle of the space which has wires coming from it that are attached to different parts of the space rigged with some sound producing element–banging pipes, squeaking, etc.  Visitors are encouraged to go play around on the piano to produce different combinations of sounds
