wearable sculpture that captures the weight of voice

Spatial Media

This is a wearable sculpture that is positioned over the head of the user. When the user makes a constant sound, water starts pumping into the bottom of the sculpture thereby increasing the weight of the sculpture. Once the sound stops, the weight of the sculpture gradually decreases as the water slowly pumps back out. Meanwhile, the voice will be played back through speakers on the floor.

In modern urban cities, people are immersed in their busy city lives and often neglect the simple but powerful physical presence of their own body and voice. This piece is installed in a quiet space where people are invited to experience the piece in peace and quiet.
