BANGOR SOUND CITY

For BANGOR SOUND CITY, the plan is to convert the local clocktower into a “Speakers Corner” made of over 5,000 weather-resistant loudspeakers, would allow the public to express itself “live” for 3 minutes via Bluetooth receivers, Wi-FI, and a local telephone number. The sculpture would also be available for local concerts and public art events.

SPEAKERS POST

Concept for the Waterfront Project in Seattle . I plan to create a gigantic SPEAKERS POST, using as model the carved wood posts from local Native Americans (the Kwakiutl of British Columbia — see image below) that were used during Potlatch ceremonies to amplify visitors’ voices. My “upgraded” version, made of over 20,000 weather-resistant loudspeakers, would allow the public to express itself “live” for 3 minutes via Bluetooth receivers, Wi-FI, and/or a local telephone number. The sculpture would also be available for local concerts and public art events.

SHOP WINDOWS

An interactive electroacoustic sculpture made of 1200 recycled loudspeakers.
Sound: low-level white noise (electromagnetic waves) are the “heartbeat” of the sound sculpture. Additionally people can call up the WINDOWS and talk through it for 3 minutes. Also via bluetooth technology spectators within 20 meters of the sculpture can participate orally/musically with their smartphones. In effect the sculpture functions as a “Speakers Corner”.

TREE (project for the Sculpture Museum in Marl/Germany)

The Tree is wrapped with 350 recycled loudspeakers. These are soldered together and connected to amplifiers, radio receivers,  bluetooth audio receivers.
The Tree plays low-level white noise however the public is also allowed via bluetooth technology to express themselves (voices and music via their smartphones)  as “oral graffitti“.
