How can an artistic/architectural intervention bring an innovative experience in order to make the current urban context better, happier.
Sound is one of the unexplored aspects. Human-being gets 75% of the information from the eyes and only 10% from the ears. Most of the invention and technological development are focusing on the optical innovation.
Translating the sound context into an artistic/architectural installation provides new experience and interactivity in several scales between the visitors and the city.
“Fragments of Sound“ is composed by wooden frame-structures and wooden panels as bracing. The shape of big megaphone emphasizes our perception as a system to grow the Sound by talking and to collect the Sound by hearing. It is a mobile structure that can be installed outdoor or indoor to discover fragments of Sound in multiple contexts.
