Slowscan Soundwave (III) is an immense, sound-sensitive sculpture by artist and dorkbot instigator Douglas Repetto. Consisting of enormous strips of transparent mylar strewn from the ceiling, wtih motors, string, and custom electronics, the piece “breathes” in sympathy with the ambient sounds in the gallery, rippling and reflecting light when there is a sound and resting, invisible, when there is silence. Because of the transparency of the mylar strips, the effect is subtle and eerie, a gossamer membrane that functions as acoustic barometer, making visible sonic phenomena that are often heard, but rarely seen.
