‘Sub­ject to In­ter­pre­ta­tion’

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Showtime - Palm Beach - - ART -

Move over, Stradi­var­ius. Sleek, 3-D-printed mu­si­cal in­stru­ments are com­ing to the Jewish Mu­seum of Florida-FIU, and they sound just like the real thing. Hus­band-and-wife artist team Eric Goldem­berg and Veron­ica Zal­cberg, who head the ar­chi­tec­ture- and de­sign-minded MONAD Stu­dio in Mi­ami, built five 3-D printer in­stru­ments that will be dis­played start­ing Tues­day at the Jewish Mu­seum of Florida-FIU. The mu­seum’s new ex­hibit, “Sub­ject to In­ter­pre­ta­tion,” of­fers six playable in­stru­ments, each sil­ver-col­ored and light­weight, in­clud­ing a piezo­elec­tric vi­o­lin, a hor­nu­copia, a small didgeri­doo and a monovi­o­lon­cello (a sin­gle-stringed elec­tric cello). The ex­hibit will close Feb. 25, 2018. The in­stru­ments of “Sub­ject to In­ter­pre­ta­tion” are part of a broader ex­hibit about the con­tri­bu­tions of Jews in Florida. One of Goldem­berg and Zal­cberg’s big­gest 3-D printer works is “La Cole,” a se­ries of or­nate pan­els that sus­pend from the mu­seum’s ceil­ing and pro­duce sound while re­fract­ing light and color. “La Cole,” short for “la colec­tivi­dad ju­dia en Ar­gentina,” was in­spired by Ar­gentina’s lo­cal, close-knit Jewish pop­u­la­tion. “This in­stal­la­tion is, af­ter all, to­tally about roots and growth,” Zal­cberg says in a pre­pared state­ment. Dur­ing the show’s 6:30-8 p.m. open­ing re­cep­tion on Tues­day, vi­o­lin­ist Michael Klotz will per­form the 3-D-printed vi­o­lin, while Mi­ami mas­ter cel­list Ja­son Cal­loway will play the monovi­o­lon­cello. When: Tues­day through Feb. 25, 2018 (re­cep­tion: 6:30-8 p.m. Tues­day) Where: The Jewish Mu­seum of Florida-FIU, 301 Washington Ave., Mi­ami Beach Cost: $5-$12, free on Satur­days Con­tact: 305-672-5044 or JMOF.FIU.edu
