Murmur is an art installation that transforms the sound of your voice into breathtaking light waves and projections. It’s the baby of 4 interactive design studios Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank. Each of them has worked on a different element of the work including visual design, object design, sound design and a deft touch of programming.
The installation simulates the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual worlds. There is a magical effect, a mystery in the way that sound waves move. Murmur focuses on this movement, thus creating an unconventional dialogue between the public and the wall.
By speaking down an echo chamber, your voice is carried down a connecting line and then interpreted into a beautiful collection of visuals using LED lights, from geometric shapes to mountains made of luminous circles. It’s enchanting and even magical to watch at times, watch the video below for the full effect.
Sit back and enjoy.
