Recent graduate brings the human body as close as it’s ever been to sound.
Parisian graphic designer and artist Bertrand Lanthiez’s most recent project has caused quite a stir due to its originality and interesting concept.
In ‘Sound Of Threads’ Lanthiez explores sound’s impact in multiple ways so that people can both feel and create music, by hearing, touching and seeing the sound. The interactive works consist of two installations designed to let viewers ‘feel’ and sense sound.
The first installation consists of four wooden stands and projects light onto Icelandic wool threads to present the beats in a visual way and extend the sound experience of the prepared sound piece.
The second invited visitors into a tiny room to create their own music piece by walking and dancing bare foot and by touching various wires hanging from the ceiling. Each sound created by the participator was connected to multi-colored light impulses projected on large, flag-like pieces of transparent fabrics creating a visually stimulating artwork.
