sound to light

murmur is an architectural prosthesis that is connected to a wall, and enables the interaction between passers-by and the LED light. It was tested in an ‘echo’s room’, designed and created by participating studios (chevalvert, 2roqs, polygraphik and splank) making reference both to the audio effect achieved and to greek mythology.

By turning sound waves into light waves, it creates a magical effect, a mystery in the way that sound waves filter through the space. It represents the key technique of the device: building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual world, manifested in the unconventional dialogue between the public and the wall.
