Interactives sound and light installation by artist Owen Rundquist and Alexander DeMaria
Untitled (City Sounding)
Electronics and sound
variable
2010

Collaborative work with Alexander DeMaria

The intent of this piece was to translate light to sound using homemade electronics and amplifiers. By shining light on photo-sensitive oscillators or obstructing it visitors were able to alter the pitch and frequency of the grating, rhythmic sounds being emitted and hear their visual surroundings. The sounds themselves were produced by transforming street signs, windows, fire alarms and whatever else we could find into makeshift speakers by connecting them to the electronics and causing them to vibrate.
