Metaspace V2
Raw aluminum, fiberglass, resin, LEDs, sensors with Spectro-Sonic Re-frequencer
14 x 9 x 9 feet
2013




Metaspace V2 is an interactive sculpture that converts light
frequencies to sound through SpectroSonic Re-frequencing. A raw
aluminum shell provides the framework for the sculpture’s
seamless interior skin. The sculpture is entered through a low
and narrow opening. Inside, the space expands into an immersive
light and sound environment that continuously evolves. Colored
LEDs illuminate the space through a resin lense at the top of
the sculpture. The curvilinear geometry of the work scatters the
colored light inside, in effect dematerializing physical
boundaries and creating a pure color space.

Sensors measure the light frequencies of the specific color and drive a tone
generator that converts the frequencies of light into
frequencies of sound, making light audible. The visceral sound
vibration shifts and modulates as the light condition changes.
The sensors also register the presence of visitor’s movement in
the space, which changes the progression and speed of the color
sequence and hence the sound. In this set-up, virtual and
physical information is processed both by the viewer and the
work, creating a feedback loop between viewers and the work.
Natural and virtual structures, layered on top of one another,
create a multi-sensory, immersive environment of phenomenological
events and digital systems. Matter becomes light and light becomes sound.
Ultimately, in the heart of this setting, Metaspace V2 blurs the border
of natural and artificial perception.
