The Karaoke-tree plays on!

9 Nov

When I first started working on the idea of the Karaoke-tree I hoped that it would be an installation that people would play with.

Something that the festival-goers would enjoy with their friends, take pictures and share with even more friends. Something to make people smile and help spread the smile.

During the festival I saw that it worked just as I had hoped, and that people gladly used it and interacted as I thought, but somehow it still surprises me, that it actually DID work! (Silly artistic insecure-ness, I guess).

AND now, a friend of mine from Norway just sent me this picture. She found it in one of her friends photo stream, and it shows this girl totally rockin’ both guitar and mic.

I love it. Thanks for sharing Ellisiv.

We’re you at the Trailerpark festival this year and saw the guitars?
If you have any pictures I’d love to see them.

Thanks!

Pictures of the Karaoke-tree ™

1 Sep


So … The StreetHeart/Trailerpark/karaoke-tree extravaganza worked like an absolute charm! Loved working with my wooden guitars and had a ton of fun watching people use them.
Here’s some pictures for you to see, from initial sketches to the final Karaoke-tree.

Enjoy! (I know, I did! :)

The Karaoke-tree ™

28 Jul

Busy busy busy! (and totally doing nothing + holidaying to).

These days I’m working on an installation at this years Trailerpark festival in Copenhagen.

Curated by Streetheart a lot of different street artists join forces with Trailerpark booked artists to make the festival an even more fun place to be.

I wanted to make something that people could interact with and something FUN! – so I’ve been working on my karaoke-tree the last couple of weeks. Compliments of my big brother, the carpenter, I’ve got some totally cool guitars and killer-ass microphones.


So the last days I’ve been painting, drying, painting, drying and then taping things up and painting some more. And it’s been a total slice of heaven! Here’s some pictures from the preparation/painting extravaganza.








I’ve been a little nervous about this, because you just never know if people react to your things the way you intended. But when the karaoke-tree was done, late last night, it just felt totally right and people started playing with the installation just as I had hoped! It was to dark for proper pictures in use, so they’ll tick in later this week.


Yai!

The festival’s opening today (with a lot of great music I might add) so I’m really excited to see how people will respond to the Karaoke-tree. (Which is not really a ™, it just looked kinda cool. Right?:)
