The shape of sound waves

This sound sculpture project, with Paolo Andriolo, took place in the office of Mr. Don Gao, CEO of Positec Group in Suzhou, China.

The sculpture has two main components: an Omni speaker and a copper plate filled with water underneath the speaker. The geometrical shape generated by the sound waves coming from the speaker is visualised clearly on the water surface.
