Sound Sculptures: Rendering Sounds in Tangible Forms - information aesthetics
Cylinder [extraversion.co.uk] is a small collection of physical data sculptures based on STL file data captured by the analysis of sound samples from spaces, creating site specific sculptures reflecting the acoustic of an environment. A mapping of the frequency and time domains produced cylindrical forms that represent the specific spatial characteristics of the sound input. Physical versions of the digital 3D models were then "printed" in 3D using stereolithography.
