The blue sea is an exploration of sound in space. It begins to test the limits and restrictions of sound using a series of different materials. Tested materials include; wood, sheet metal, fabric dipped in resin, foam and cork. The focus began to narrow down depending on its flexibility and working properties. Foam became a great material because it offered the flexibility that was desired along with its absorption that was needed to alter the acoustics in the space.
Module size : 6"x6" Tile size : 12"x12"x8"
Strengths of material : Omnidirectional, flexible, material consistency, light weight.
The manipulation of the form began by taking a 6"x6" sheet of foam and folding it back to create a 3dimensional object. From there the object repeated itself as a modular system branching out in all directions.
Shows the system as a 12"x12"x8" tile being rived together.
How sound affects the surface
The image above begins to break down the material properties of foam and how it is affected as a tangible surface.
