Mainly inspired by Pinuccio Sciola’s singing stones, I would like to try coming up with ways for people to interact with a site which generate sounds or melodies by themselves.
The statue itself seems like a silent creature, where everyone just sits there, hearing and absorbing all those other sounds, whether irritating or pleasing, without paying attention to it.
If it has emotion, it would probably feel very lonely.
That’s why I created this piece for it by mixing robotic voices with recordings of the environment around it. Other than that, this piece was displayed and disguised as part of the sculpture, and I also used interactive pieces so that when people touch different parts of it, it would have various responses based on those interactions.
