The Enslaved Drummer Boy is an interactive musical figurative light sculpture that shines a light on the musical lineages of enslaved people in Algiers Point. The sculpture depicts a young enslaved African boy in translucent glass-like material standing tall on a Djembe style drum. The lower section is touch interactive, allowing the user to trigger sounds and light. The artwork provides an interactive way to educate the public on the history of the first Africans in Louisiana. Algiers Point during the 1720s was the musical and cultural gathering location for enslaved Africans from Algiers and New Orleans before the time of Congo Square in the 1800s. Indigenous people from the area encouraged the enslaved Africans to use the location as a gathering place as they did. The enslaved Africans who lived in Algiers Point created cultural and musical traditions that are echoed in our contemporary culture today. This sculpture will be incorporated into the national series titled Slavery Trails. Slavery Trails is a musically interactive site-specific augmented reality (AR) installation series based on slave ships and enslaved people, placed on historical sites throughout the United States. Slavery Trails is a decentralized memorial to slavery in the United States.
This sculpture is part of the City of New Orleans’ Percent for Art Collection and will be permanently installed in 2024 in Algiers. Arts New Orleans

Electro-Sonic Painting: An immersive exhibit of sound paintings
마커스 브라운은 어두운 일렉트로닉 홉을 배경으로 하여 힙합/록 보컬을 부르면서 자신이 제작한 음향 예술 기구로 그림을 그리는 예술가로 알려져있다. 10년을 넘도록 브라운은 소리를 내는 페인팅 도구를 만들고 왔고 이를 사용하여 그가 개발한 Electro-Sonic Painting이라는 과정을 통해 시각 및 음악 예술 작품을 만들어 왔다.
Electro-Sonic Painting은 Brown이 다른 음악가들과 노래하고 연주하는 동시에 음향 기구로 그림을 그리는 전자 음악 형식의 그림 또는 마크 메이킹이라 한다. 그의 작업은 특수한 소리를 내는 페인트 브러시, 각종 도구 및 표면을 통해 만들어진다. Brown은 형광성, 때로는 전기 전도성의 색감을 사용한다.
Art is spiritual, it's science, it's history, it's healing, it's love, it's everything. Art is a prayer in making. - Marcus Brown
