Wanderers

A short film by Erik Wernquist...



"Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

Want...

Soundscapes by Studio van Broekhoven

Sculpture made from a piece of sound spatially recorded (based on Chladni patterns) by Ricky van Broekhoven:

"As a sound designer and musician I always experience music as something very tangible. Almost in the same degree as experiencing a landscape. But sound always remains something ungraspable. I got fascinated by the Chladni patterns. They visualise resonance patterns of sound in a miraculous way. Salt or a similar substance is poured on a thin metal plate that is resonating on a clear tone. Every tone frequency has it’s own specific symmetrical organic drawing that appears. The device used is called a Chladni plate. During my research I built several. I made the process of transformation within the drawing on the Chladni plate three dimensional inspired by CT scan technology. A piece of sound is now spatially recorded.

Every soundbit will have it’s own characteristic sculpture. The results of this study consists of a 3d print of a soundbit of approx. 400-600hz and a handmade model of tulip wood of approx. 550-600hz."
