‘Murmur’ bridges physical and virtual using sound

murmur_06

Created using Raspberry Pi and openFrameworks, Murmur is a device that enables the communication between public and the projection by simulating the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual.

The device was designed to collect the murmurs of the public. Referred to “echo’s room”, making reference both to the audio effect achieved and to Greek mythology, it represents not only the key technique of the Murmur device, but also its magical aspect, turning sound waves into light waves.

The project is a collaboration between Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank.
