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."

Geodesics

Geodesics by Naomi Reis

Naomi Reis' "Geodesics" series

The "Geodesics" series is a tribute to the spirit of investigation into the frontiers of science and engineering, in particular the innovations of Buckminster Fuller, a futurist and early advocate of sustainability who coined the phrase "spaceship Earth.” His geodesic spheres became symbols of an optimistic movement toward an improved future, a utopian quest to improve the world through efficient and better design. As curator Nicole Caruth writes about the series, “Geodesic Spheres embody many different ideas about digital systems and globalization, the architectures of the web, and to the unknowns of future technologies.”

Solar Reserve

Solar Reserve

On a large LED wall located near the Lincoln Center in New York, artist John Gerrard is showing Solar Reserve, a realistic video game type of art that shows computer-generated images of a Nevada solar thermal power plant and its surrounding desert landscape. The dizzying world includes a tower that’s surrounded by 10,000 mirrors that adjust their positions in real-time according to the location of the sun.
