138/365 Sun Box Meditation

Last year, Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) celebrated the Spring Equinox with Sun Boxes, a solar-powered sound installation by Craig Colorusso. When I think of what I expect to experience at an art museum, I think of experiencing something visual. Sun Boxes, however, are very plain in appearance and hardly vision-worthy, but that’s a good thing! Sun Boxes are not intended as a visual experience but as an audio experience and so with nothing overtly interesting to look at, you close your eyes and relax into the meditative tones.

I didn’t take a lot of photos that day because, like many others, I lay down, closed my eyes, and opened myself up to a peaceful and rejuvenating experience. It was glorious.

  1. This looks awesome, I’d love to see something like that.

  2. Wish I could have experienced this. The last two photos are great!

    • It was a wonderful experience. If you click on the link to the sounds it will take you to…ta dah!…what it sounded like. Imagine a park-like setting and you end up with a very meditative experience.
