the result is wavescape


a unique, immersive installation that visualises almost

any sound made in a space


exactly where you make it


even those subtle and soft


it enchanted the public to observe how different sounds

leave waves with different motions


to see how waves transform or bounce back from the walls


our sensitive approach ensured

a serene and subtle atmosphere of exploration


 while over 100 people could enjoy

interactivity at the same time

waves was further exhibited at naturhistorisches museum in vienna (2015) and in the evoluon in eindhoven (2014)




commissioned to create a light installation in a former philips radio factory, it dawned upon me that with any sound we make, we push sound waves into the air - but all of this is invisible


i wondered if we could make this 'world of waves' visible


to explore this, i formed an interdisciplinary team with sorama and my students at eindhoven university of technology


we started to experiment with visual motion dynamics that balanced reality with expressivity and developed novel sound camera technology to work in real-time



can we see the sound waves we produce?
