This project focusses on nested forms, sculptural works that elicit an architecture of sound. These Volumes for sound are concerned with materializing the funneling, folding and porting of sound.
These nested forms stem from objects that are manufactured independently, then drawn together as a result of relationships in domestic and architectural situations. For instance, the triangulation that occurs when a listener sits in a chair in front of a pair of stereo speakers. These forms are also inspired by historical sources such as the famous 1979 Maxell cassette tape ad campaign, the intricate interiors of modern loudspeakers, and artist Kurt Schwitters ‘Merzbau’ constructions.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
