What is Nostalgia?

Nostalgia is an immersive interactive installation from Guatemala, designed by Artist María Adela Díaz in collaboration with Composer and Musician Joaquin Orellana. It features a handmade sound sculpture of 60 giant undulating rainsticks that can be activated by visitors to create sounds of water and movement. Following its successful residency at the London Design Biennale in June, Nostalgia is now coming to the Royal Docks for families across Newham to interact with and enjoy. We have devised two new family workshops around the themes of sound, water and movement. We invite you to come and reimagine sounds of water in the Royal Docks.
