What I love about this artwork is how it uses the data and the space and convert it into sound.
It creates a soundscape that makes us listen to the gallery’s data.
However what makes me even more intrigued is the way the speakers are arranged. The speakers are places in different planes and on different height. A good use of repetition not only helps to enhance the visual interest of the space, but is also important in defining the parameters of how much space is being occupied.
The wide range of speakers also allow a wider range of data to be heard. The artist also uses software to convert the streams of data into sound.
I think how we think about the space is important .
What kind of sound do I want to gather? What kind of feelings will it invoke? If the audience is responsible for creating the sound, then how much freedom are we giving them?
