Interactive Sound Wall by Anjali Patel
Sound is one of the most important senses, but when offered the choice to be blind or deaf, people are quick to abandon sound in favor of sight. Though usually considered secondary to vision, sound has more power than people give it credit. Sound provides a myriad of important influences that people take for granted, and this project aims to highlight the beauty of sound and space. The design’s reaction to sound alters the space around the participant(s), encouraging communication and experimentation, opening their eyes to the subtleties of space and sound. The wall acts as a physical representation of the sound within, so the viewer can determine the atmosphere by reading the structure and acting accordingly.
