About Murmur. Idea, object & philosophy.

Murmur reveals and materializes the movement of sound waves. The project retransforms the concepts of speed, space and time by creating a luminous link between the public and the wall, and between the physical and the virtual worlds.

Discover the founding principles of the project below.

Murmur révèle et matérialise le déplacement des ondes sonores. Le projet détourne les notions de vitesse, d’espace et de temps en créant une passerelle lumineuse entre le public et le mur, le monde physique et virtuel.

  4. […] The Murmur installation introduces a similar capacity for controllability, this time via the human voice. It lets visitors interact with an LED light wall by simulating the movement of sound waves. The installation was created in partnership between four French design studios as a way to enable passersby to communicate with their surroundings by collecting the ‘murmurs’ of the public and translating them into light. The sounds are captured by device called the ‘Echo Chamber,’ in reference to the audio effect achieved. The project results in an unconventional dialogue that bridges the physical and virtual worlds, combining the four disciplines of visual design, object design, sound design, and programming. […]
