MSHR is an art collective that collaboratively builds and explores sculptural electronic systems.

Their performances and installations integrate electrical signals and human presence, weaving dense networks of causality to form audiovisual environments that babble with life-like current.

They explore intuitive and technical gradients between sonic and sculptural forms, using analog circuitry and open-source software to sculpt mutually resonant hyperobjects.

MSHR was founded by Brenna Murphy and Birch Cooper in 2011 in Portland, Oregon.

The name MSHR is a modular acronym designed to hold varied ideas over time. It can be pronounced as an acronym or like one who meshes.
