Source of Sound
Integration of a digital organ with 16 speakers into the existing architecture of Gethsemane Church in Würzburg/Germany.
Analogous to the functionality of the organ the design was elaborated on the idea of creating a visually sparkling source of sound. Based on an algorithm that emits wave-shaped rings of holes various in diameter the picture of a spring was generated.
The holes were then milled into a panel of bent wood to make space for the soundwaves from the organ speakers. Apart from creating a dynamic picture the software also was used to generate the pattern in a way that 60% of the material directly in front of the speakers was taken away.
