The installation attempts to answer the question, “if we could see sound, what would it look like?” The physic of wave propagation is applied to the visualization to create a wave-like representation. This work was first exhibited at Russia’s Cyberfest in 2009 at the State Hermitage Museum. Multiple high sensitivity sound detectors were placed in the room at different locations. The real-time visualization responds to how sound propagates across a given space. This work is done in collaboration with High Energy Physicist, Shih-Wen Young. As an extension to the real-time visualization, I also photo documented hundreds of wave moments, each is separated by a fraction of a second.
Captured in each photograph is a sound moment frozen in space. This work was published by Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), presented at the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) 2008, Singapore, and exhibited at the Hall of Science in New York.
