sound-space

Visualists, sound artists and technologists working in contemporary art and science to create new environments to explore.

Experience a unique multi-point sound-sculpture using the sounds of sun-spots, cosmic radiation and radio anomalies.

Visitors of all ages are invited to explore an immersive sensory environment created using other-worldly sounds broadcast by a series of mounted metal antennae. Radio static, solar interference, deep-space transmissions and more are all interwoven, resulting in a one-of-a-kind aural environment defined by audio frequency radio waves bringing unheard sounds to the forefront of our consciousness.

Once they’ve entered this sound-space, participants will experience the aesthetic nature of a newly designed aural environment without subconscious filters, inspiring the realization of the myriad spaces around them and the many possible futures that all of those spaces offer.

The installation employs printmaking techniques to create a visually spectacular experience through a composite of acrylic, reflective panels (mirrors), and light.

The sculpture, floating like a crystal chandelier, captures the viewer’s image and reflects it onto an ephemeral 3 dimensional map of Toronto’s landscape and histories that are engraved on the panels.


 as the volume of ambient noise increases or decreases, the orbs will either speed up or slow down in response.

This interactive installation fuses sound, light, and people to create a dynamic architectural piece that kinetically responds to the energy of its users. To do so, the installation measures the ambient noise levels within an enclosed public space in order to activate suspended orbs of light to move in a glowing sinuous wave.

Based on the frequency of sound in the room, the movement of the light orbs will vary; as the volume of ambient noise increases or decreases, the orbs will either speed up or slow down in response.

The resultant effect is a completely responsive ceiling condition of undulating movement that continuously evolves as users create various types of noise in the space.
