Environmental Sound Erosion

This project focuses on subjects of the non visual, in-describable, emotional, and ephemeral with hopes to quantify, document, and rationalize. The goal is to create a tool that reveals the influence of sound on our physical environment overtime through translating collected environmental sound data to wax.

Through the repetition of listening and carving, similar to a timelapse, or rock formations due to wind and water over millennia, the robot will create a physical representation of the sound over a set period of time.

Soundscape as Architect
The end of the process is attempting to take sound’s effect on the wax and remapping that back into the physical space. This will change the sound profile of a space by introducing an architectural work that has been influenced by the sound before its installation.
