StudioSound cracked unicorns by Guillermo E. Brown
Apr 2, 2009 - Jun 28, 2009

Guillermo E. Brown created cracked unicorns, an original piece in direct dialogue with the Museum-wide exhibition Collected. Mimicking the exhibition’s organization and collective curatorial vision, Brown’s piece is divided into twelve sections, each addressing a different era or aspect of the presented works. Interested in both illuminating and tapping into the works themselves, he also engaged in assisting viewers in making the (literal and figurative) switch from street to gallery. Sonically filling the museum’s lobby, cracked unicorns ushered viewers into the Museum and prepared them for the diversity and breadth of the permanent collection. Adding another layer to his “wild sounds that activate pictures inside other humans,” cracked unicorns is a unique and distinctive aural experience.
