Christian Marclay’s interactive installation Chalkboard (2010) invites visitors to write notes, drawings or graffiti on a architecturally-scaled chalkboard ruled with musical staff lines. Periodically, this "score" is interpreted by musicians. Once a concert is finished, the board is cleared and the process begins again until the next. Despite being a piece of musical notation, the work subverts the classical composition and the conventional score offering this degree of freedom to the public as well as to the musicians.
