We have worked with Brooklyn-based Swoon before on our 10th year anniversary project in Detroit, and we are happy to hear from her now as she embarks on a new project in New Orleans. Swoon has re-imagined ?a permanent, interactive sculpture for the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. It will look like a house, but it will function like a musical instrument.

As we wrote last month, Swoon is showing in Melbourne, Australia at Metro Gallery, and the Australian press has been more than happy to embrace the Brooklyn-based artist. We found this video that ABC Arts in Australia shot of the artist, not bad for what appears to be major coverage of Swoon's show. Video after the jump . . .
