Murmur

Moving from sound to light, by talking to walls, Murmur is an architectural prosthesis enabling communication between passers-by and a wall, upon which a device called Echo Chamber making reference to Greek mythology is connected.

The installation simulates the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between physical and virtual worlds. We are often unaware how sound waves move: Murmur focuses on this mystery and movement.

Based on a collaborative and open approach, the Murmur group grew around the project from early 2013. Four disciplines are represented: visual design, object design, sound design and programming. Participating studios are Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank. All provided specialist experience and worked together towards the full realisation of the project.
