What: The City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitors Center presents Ranjit Bhatnagar
During the Open Space Residency, sound artist Ranjit Bhatnagar uses found and salvaged materials from the Bosque to create a set of sound sculptures that are activated by the wind. These sculptures, inspired by windmills, turbines, wind chimes and so forth, are placed around the site for visitors to discover and to play by hand if they wish.
Please, walk along the red path on the East side of the Visitor Center and discover the “Sound Sculptures” artist/engineer Ranjit Bhatnager has created. If there is no wind to activate the art, please carefully active the sculpture by hand.
