Artistic research: Sound as vibration


In this research i investigate sound at its source, the moment it is shaped, sound as a physical phenomenon. 'Shaping' and 'appearing' are in this research two important concepts. How can i shape sound into matter which manifests itself as a tangible, visible medium?

Two-year scholarship by the Flemish Government
Thanks to GUM (Ghent University Museum) for their collaboration in setting up the historical probes.
