Sound Matters is a series of digital objects molded by sampled ambient sounds, that offers a look into the complexity of omnipresent events that surround us.
The artwork is an exploration triggered by the desire to rediscover and repurpose sounds we take for granted and often disregard; and converting them into images that aim to trigger in others the same rediscovery feeling.
Sound Matters is a tribute to sounds, those that are lost, the ones we pay no attention to, or the ones simply ignored.
The project presents few moments in time stored in a physical shape, creating a medium made by time and space, which offers an alternative way to travel back to those sounds. This conversion, from intangible into a shape with strong physical qualities and presence, aims to bring awareness to the richness of common ambient sound. Each piece offers a unique visualization.
These stones are a landscape that you can explore with your eyes. They offer a unique look inside the sound captured in that place and yet, somehow they themselves are the place. Sampled sounds presented as samples of matter.
