Sound Bites, St Paul St Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand. Exhibition of an interactive sound installation and 3D printed chocolate artefacts.
Materialising the immaterial: Sound and memory as intimate personal experience.
Sound Bites is the result of an experimental design practice. Four days of 24/7 ambient sound recordings resulted in 128 4-second intimate sound loops. Fast Fourier Transform frequency analysis and geometrical operations transformed time, frequency, and amplitude into X, Y and Z dimensions, forming 3D sonic shapes. These ‘disco donuts’ were 3D printed into 128 sound objects. Vacuum molded they formed the base to cast 128 unique chocolate objects. New rhythmic patterns were created, comprising frozen moments in time.
Matter is energy. Objects are processes. Memories are expectations.
