Art Installation Makes 2,000 Cardboard Boxes Sound Like Rain

Avatar Brandon Gorrell

This slick art installation at the Contemporary Art Museum MNAC in Bucharest, Romania is basically just a bunch of cardboard boxes… that sound like rain. It appears is if motors (200 in total) attached to boxes in strategic locations produce the sound, while the acoustics of the structure itself serve to enhance and propagate it. The whole thing is really quite calming, if not for the sound it makes, than for its large, fragile, temple-like structure.
