We open our new cultural complex located in the heart of Long Beach with a newly commissioned experiential installation by artist Glenn Kaino. The Laboratory at Compound is a site for artistic experimentation. It is a place for art to interface directly with the public with the intention of supporting artists in realizing innovative ideas according to their vision. Compound is invested in creating intimate encounters between new art and new audiences.
The participatory installation Tidepools is composed of three parts: a wishing well, a cloud chamber, and a resonant sound component.
