Weng Nam Yap designs an interactive installation that turns graphic images into audio.

Malaysia-based designer Weng Nam Yap came up with the installation “Graphics Speak” that translates visual elements into sound. Each ‘record' is printed with a different graphical pattern, which can be played using the custom turntable Yap has designed.

Each graphic has its own sound, and can be mixed to create various compositions. The DJ equipment is attached with a camera that records the turning vinyl onto an analog television. The electromagnetic waves transmitted from the TV are then translated into sound via a sensor.
