Sound Garden engages the viewer/participant in the familiar extended mediation device of audio amplification through the use of microphones and multiple speaker arrays. The participants and observers, however, discover that their interactions transform the invisible motion of sound into visible form.
A Pure data program was used to shift the pitch of audio input to sub audible levels enabling the speakers to move in response to the participants interactions, bringing a visible form to the physical presence of their sound in the environment.
Sound Garden was realized with the Pd programming and technical assistance of Shawn Pigeon and sculptural collaboration with Annie Plouffe.
