Murmur

May 25th, 2013
Murmur is an interactive installation composed of an architectural prosthesis enabling the communication between passers-by and the wall upon which it is connected. It was unveiled during the «Nuit Numérique #10» in Reims in May 2013.

Principle

The installation simulates the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual worlds. Murmur focuses on this movement, thus creating an unconventional dialogue between the public and the wall.

The “Echo Chamber” is a specific device that was designed and created to gather speech and whispers of people in order to turn sound waves into light waves. In turn, these light waves give birth geometric patterns when hitting the wall.

Collaboration

Based on a collaborative and open approach, the Murmur group has gathered around the project since early 2013. Four disciplines are represented: visual design, object design, sound design and interactive coding. The participating studios are Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank.
