Exhibition
Fashioned from a 1981 Mitsubishi Sigma car, The MIDIBISHI sculpture will inhabit the Town Square of Tonsley Innovation District, a manufacturing hub at the former Mitsubishi Assembly Plant. In parking mode, the MIDIBISHI broadcasts 24/7 a series of experimental music soundscapes composed by the artists and inspired by industry. On two occasions during the installation period, the car is shifted into a higher gear with The MIDIBISHI PERFORMANCES at nightfall. Bespoke MIDI technology transforms the sculpture into a musical instrument activated by the artists in an exciting, immersive spectacle that references the performative rituals of factory work and the trajectory of local automotive manufacturing. Supported by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet through Arts South Australia, Tonsley Innovation District/Renewal SA and the National Motor Museum.
