CAAD is an experimental laboratory for trying out new models of research, pedagogy, and practice, that foreground critical making and doing as complementary activities to critical thinking. CAAD programming is loosely organized around the senses, with 2014-15’s theme of “Vision,” 2015-16’s theme of “Sound,” and 2016-17’s theme of “Touch.”
A SOUND CUBE AT VASSAR
A local Hudson Valley non-profit project, Sound and Story, has been traveling across the area, Vassar included, in the last few years with an architecturally interesting portable recording space, training local organizations in oral history, interviewing, recording stories, and so forth. The space is called The Cube, and when assembled, fits in a 20' x 20' area with a full recording studio inside. It can be disassembled into panels and stored in a small area.
How do sixteen geometric pieces come together to create this unique mobile recording booth? Watch this time lapse video to find out. The Sound and Story Cube travels the region collecting the stories of everyday people. More information at soudnandstory.org.
The Cube is coming to Vassar! Stay tuned for more details coming soon about how and where this exciting new resource will be available to the campus community.
