Paper Speakers

This project explores the technical, design, and aesthetic possibilities of 2-D, flexible audio speaker technology. The premise underlying this exploration is the idea that sound can be thought of as a physically immediate, transparent and embodied material. The end goal for me is the use of this material for my art practice: Sound Art, Installation, and Composition.

These organisms are constructed with motorized brushes rubbing against metallic bodies. The minute sound of the friction scrapping against each other is amplified through the carefully bending of their bodily shape.
