Exhibitions > Sensing Sound

Creators: Anat Safran and Lila Chitayat
Visualization coding: Gal Sasson

What does one remember when one remembers a home? The noises in the kitchen, conversations in the living room, whispers in the bedroom, birds tweeting in the yard. Modern man seems to have lost the ability to listen without being dependent on visual information. Sound, perhaps more than any other sensory element, has a direct, physical, and significant connection to the human body. Beyond its function as a tool for orienting oneself in space and a means of communications, its dependence on vibrations sensed within the body may cause us to experience physical changes, influence our feelings and sensations, provoke pain and pleasure, awaken fear and calm, and even impact the other senses.

The installation Sensing Sound invites visitors to feel, see, and listen to sound in a new way. The gallery space was designed in accordance with acoustic principles that enable listening through materials, forms, and the body. The gallery contains 22 loudspeakers operating on 16 separate sound channels. These speakers function as an open platform, which hosts eight leading design and sound artists. In their works, these artists relate to the gallery space, to the body, and to the visitor's listening experience. This is an opportunity to listen to sound with one's body, to interpret space through sound, to move through sound. This is an invitation to be sound.
