    Built Installation

    Experience Oli, an interactive musical installation that invites you to create music and connect with people and places around you.

    By simply moving your hands around Oli, you can create delightful tunes and experience the joy of making music together with others. Join us at the Seattle Design Festival and rediscover the joy of spontaneous human interaction with Oli. Designed for everyone, regardless of musical background, Oli transforms everyday interactions into profound shared experiences. The installation encourages visitors to pause, engage with the object, and connect with their surroundings and fellow beings.

    In an age where technology often pulls us away from our natural, social, and built environments, Oli takes a heartfelt and bold approach to do the opposite. It encourages genuine (re)connections between people, promoting more face-to-face interactions rather than isolating through technology. Through the universal language of music, Oli promotes human connection, enhances mental well-being, and adds a spirit of celebration to public spaces.
