Wavesticks

I recently did some mentoring for the wonderful Eyebrow Arts, as part of their most recent research and development into multi-sensory, interactive performance for audiences living with dementia.

As a result I was asked to create some bespoke instruments based on a rainstick, where the materials inside the rainstick could be seen moving. It was also necessary for the materials inside the sticks to be swapped in and out quickly and for them to be relatively lightweight.

I’m really pleased with the end result and had a great time working with a laser cutter. The theme of their current show is the coast and so these instruments have been named ‘Wavestick’
