Vessels: Designing for Autonomous Sound
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the process of designing for natures autonomous soundscape through an experimental meditation on the phenomenology of acoustic resonance: the sonic vibrations of objects. Manifested in a series of sculptural resonant cavities, formed from found objects, these vessels became instruments, listening devices and reliquaries of a resonant relic through creation, performance and preservation. The intent of this thesis was to design for natures soundscape to expose sound as a powerful medium capable of eliciting intimate, self-reflective moments with nature.
