PRI presents Sound Modulation
Utilizing advancements in “pink noise sound control,” most commonly used as sound privacy technology in open office floor plans, schools, and confessionals, we propose to erect an office ceiling outdoors under which conversations can be muted or distorted with ambient pink sound. Confounding these efforts at privacy there will be sound imported from the fair’s interior pavilion played back at our exterior venue as a form of ambient conversation. The installation attempts to balance the cultural, social, and personal need for auditory privacy with the desire to be unilaterally included in the community conversation.
Update: Sound Modulation was accepted to NADA Hudson 2012 in June, but due to circumstances outside of our control PRI was unable to participate in the event.
