frozen—sound as space
Frozen is an exhibition of experiments in the representation of sound in media beyond the auditory. It examines the sound signal as a virtual space, presenting possible mappings that visualize or interpret the structures contained within the soundwaves. The representation of sound as spatial structures, realized as physical objects through the use of digital fabrication technologies.
Frozen pulls the plug and presents audio art, prints, and sculptures as independent, but interconnected works of art.
Multi-channel sound pieces can be experienced over an advanced speaker setup, accompanied by sound in a “frozen” form: Images and sculptural objects made using sound as input. These artworks use audio analysis and custom software processes to extract meaningful data from the sound signal, creating a mapping between audio and other media. Frozen features digital prints as well as four “sound sculptures” created using digital fabrication technology such as rapid prototyping, CNC and laser cutting, which allow for the direct translation of a digital model into physical form.
