Nigun is a sound installation that formed a one-time human sound instrument, which responded to the audience’s movement along the museum space, questioning the passive and active roles of people and politics.

The installation invited 60 acoustic instrument musicians, placed along the museum's spaces. Each musician was given identical music notes of a famous Israeli patriotic song, a personal floor "button,” and the instructions to follow this one simple rule: you may play only if one of the museum's visitors presses your floor button.

By following this mechanism, the installation yielded a cacophonous, unique, coincidental and collective sound instrument. The visitors had control over the music, interplaying between the roles of passive listeners and active users in the distortion of the song.
