3D Printed souvenir of Craigsbank Church

  The aim of this project is to evaluate how in-situ and interactive musical compositions and digital craft may mediate the understanding, appreciation and value attached to, as yet, unloved, Modern architectural heritage.

Contemporary musical composition and in-situ digital craft allows the public to interact with and immediately create their own responses to their environment in an immediate, personal way. Using musical composition, written specifically for the architectural site and 3D printed souvenirs of the building, printed within the building, visitors will be allowed to move from place to place, to experience the sounds and the interiors together. Participants will therefore feel they have had a co-created, unique, personal experience with the interior of the church. In this way, the bringing together of representation of site and experiential interaction with the musical composition will be combined, building authenticity within the process.

The research team will evaluate whether, through the public's' interaction with the in-situ musical composition, performance and souvenir, their perception of the coexisting surroundings is more positive, neutral or negative. This will be undertaken using participant observation methods and semi-structured interviews.
