The Power Plant

Power Kids at TOAF: Take Flight

Thu Jul 02 – Sun Jul 12 2020

6:30 AM – 8:00 AM




In 2017, The Power Plant presented Amalia Pica: ears to speak of, an exhibition that reminds us of the importance of listening and communication. Amalia created three sculptures made of cardboard, to-scale versions of concrete sound mirrors built along the coast of England in the 1920s and 1930s, intended to detect incoming airplanes. Whereas concrete reflects sound, cardboard absorbs sound. In this art-making activity, we will create our own cardboard airplanes in response to Amalia’s cardboard sound mirrors.
