Human Harp will change the way you look at bridges
What do you see when you look at suspension bridges? Di Mainstone sees massive musical instruments — and opportunities for connection.
The sound installation artist joins Shad to discuss The Human Harp project, which invites "movitians" to create haunting music by plucking the "chords" of bridges around the world.
"There's a real beauty in seeing a small, tiny human being connected to a giant industrial structure of a bridge," she says. "There's something quite powerful about that."
Mainstone also explains how she cut through red tape to realize her unusual idea.
