“touch the sound picnic” [2017]



Visitors go on a picnic wearing ear muffs so they can hear no sound, and equipped with the artist’s self-built device that translates sound into vibration. The work will remind those who experience it how we automatically use our eyes, nose, skin or other part of the body, to sense what is happening around us once we are unable to perceive sounds with our ears. Suggested here is an alternative way of appreciating a sound installation without depending on hearing, through a tactile perception of sound instead.

Cooperation: JST-ACCEL “Embodied Media Technology based on Haptic Primary Colors” and Graduate School of Media Design, Keio University
