imaginarium for sensing sound
a living instrument study 1.0 (2015 - )
What if you were a particle of a sound? If you could perceive and feel sound from the inside of it?
The interactive sound installation Sensonarium is imagined as a representation of the membrane that holds a sound. Being inside of this membrane and feeling the sound, one becomes an internal particle of it.
Through analyzing microscopic slides, this work explores and exhibits the visual structures of different elements (water, wood, pollen, earth, metal, tissue...), and then by further examining different sounds and frequencies through cymatics, the superposed findings are then paired up with each element with combinations of sounds. As a result, visual images have become the equivalent signature sounds of each element, their air vibrations, their voices.
The intended effect is for the spectator, while interacting with the installation, to feel these vibrations and frequencies, being and becoming a part of their insides, becoming the atom.
