The Sonic Painting
is a sound-visual installation designed to arouse one’s creativity by using sounds generated directly from participants. This installation transforms sounds into visual components consisting of shapes and colors projected onto the floor of a large room in realtime. This will enable visitors to draw a picture by using sounds that they produce in the space.
The idea of this transformation was inspired by Goethe’s “Theory of colour” and “Phenomena.” According to this theory, sound and color are qualities of a corresponding medium, namely air and “the partially transparent medium.” The qualities of sound and color can be defined just as we otherwise define the qualities of weight and movement.
