ACOUSTIC OSTEOLOGY

An awarded project from Radical DB, Etopia - Centre for Art and Science, Zaragoza, Spain. This speculative project was developed in collaboration with Designer Agi Haines and investigates how current methods of the medical use of sound might develop to code sound into the structural fabric of the body. The growth rings of bone develop with time similarly to the growth lines on a tree, these lines have been photographed with a microscope and then traced. The data from these traces was then translated to a chromatic scale revealing a complex auditory soundscape.

 

The exhibition included two interactive spinning discs (made from enlarged microscopic images of bone rings) which produced sound when turned, and a 3d printed sculpture of an ultrasonic emitting device.
