Sound Garden

Сад Звука — это проект, который рассматривает сад, как пространство, которое развивает право на свободу слова. Обычно в парках предоставляется возможность заниматься танцами, ораторским искусством, спортом. Сад Звука же позволит экспериментировать со звуком, с созданием звуковых пейзажей.

Концепция проекта: Размещенные в ландшафте раструбы транслируют звук. Звук как продукт жизни людей растворяется в окружающей природе. В проекте исследуется идея сада как тихого и мирного пейзажа. Мы ищем звуковой эквивалент бурной и цветастой растительности. Конические раструбы улавливают внешние звуки и, усиливая их, передают обратно в парк. Таким образом рождается новый способ общения: вы приезжайте в сад, чтобы поделиться своими мыслями с другими, приезжайте в сад, чтобы слушать!

Техническое описание: 20-24 оцинкованных стальных листов (4′x10 ‘) вырезать, сформировать в виде конусов и сварить вместе в открытой сферической конфигурации. Окрасить в белый цвет краской, стойкой к ржавчине. Количество конусов в одной структуре количество самих структур зависит от бюджета.

 

Purpose:   Sound Garden is a project which envisions the power of the garden as a space which amplifies our rights as citizens of the world to exchange words freely. Where the garden traditionally has offers individuals the opportunity to experiment with physical artistic gestures, this garden allows for one to experiment with audial gestures to create landscapes of changing sound. In this, Sound Garden is looking to renew the art of the garden by investigating a new medium of exposure combined with a new experience.

Concept of the project: A landscape of projected and funneled din, Sound Garden provides a new platform for human expression to be defused and infused into and through nature. Inverting the idea of garden as a quiet and peaceful landscape of multi-color fusions with a boisterous and loud energy housed amidst a symphony of white, the Garden’s undulating structure of conical units are mirrored by waves of voices and sounds that are amplified from inside to out and outside to in. The intention of this Garden is to not only create a space and place for people to come to enjoy and interact with, but to create a new tool for communication.

Come to the garden to share your thoughts with others. Come to the garden to listen.

Technical description:

20-24 galvanized steel sheets (4’x10’) cut, formed into a cone structure, and welded together into an open spherical configuration. To be painted white with rust resistant paint.

Cone seats to be added as budget allows for. Garden to grow larger as budget allows for.

Explanatory Note

Social Revolution 2013

In recent years, my work has examined the intertwining of public art and architecture, generating inhabitable structures and sculptures as tools for social, economic, and political justice. Investigating art and architecture not only as object but as an event to instigate a conversation within the public realm, breaking down the barrier of privatized space and museum boarders, my projects look to not only uncover new spaces and relationships with the body and its context, but question public art and architecture at their level of involvement with preserving our human rights. In this, I am interested in establishing site specific interactive platforms for human expression.

A landscape of projected and funneled din, Sound Garden provides a new platform for human expression to be defused and infused into and through its surrounding context. Inverting the idea of garden as a quiet and peaceful landscape of multi-color fusions with a boisterous and loud energy housed amidst a symphony of white, the Garden’s undulating structure of conical units are mirrored by waves of voices and sounds that are amplified from inside to out and outside to in. The intention of this Garden is to create a space and place which encourages people of all ages to enjoy and interact with, both visually and physically, while creating a new tool for communication.

Come to the garden to share your thoughts with others. Come to the garden to listen.

Short bio of the author

For years, I have contemplated to turn architecture on its head, an approach that has lead me down a road of discovery and cross hybridization; with art and performance; with fashion and furniture; with biology and earth science…and beyond. Focusing on creating architecture through the act of making and drawing/notation, merging exercises and craft of architects and artists from centuries past with contemporary theory and technologies, I aspire to construct spaces which offer new lenses for its inhabitants to see beyond their established idea of what design is into something provocative and inspiring while providing a new platform for human expression.

In recent years, my research and work has generated guerrilla architecture as a tool for social, economic, and political justice. Investigating architecture not only as object but as an event to instigate a conversation within the public realm, my projects look to not only uncover new spaces and new relationships with the body and its constructed context, but question architecture at the level of its involvement in preserving our human rights.
