Rippled Wood Boards Map The Sounds Of New York City [Pics]
Artist takes a fresh approach to capturing the hustle and bustle of the most populous city in the United States.
Conceptual artist Erica Sellers latest work sees the perfect blend between art and technology and proves that the young, upcoming creative is definitely one to watch.
Her new project titled The Grind comes in the form of a range of wooden boards that play host to New York City’s soundscapes through their rippled surfaces. To accomplish this, Sellers collected audio samples throughout various areas of the city over the course of a month. She then converted them into sound waves and transformed those waves into 3D surfaces using 3D modeling software. To complete the project, oscillations from the audio were ground into reclaimed local wood using CNC technology.
