Great example of a sound installation working with architecture.

There’s speakers positioned here and there in underground passageways around the courtyard making drippy river sounds – and little alcoves with flickering video projections. Then when you penetrate the bizarre central underground passageway there is some serious river sound bass bin action! Ace.

It’s open 7 days a week and it is free.
