sonic_pond is a location-based sonic installation that uses intermediated interactivity to challenge our perception of place and environment. By placing sound as non-scripted interventions, Sonic Pond is a location based experience.
Wireless micro controllers discreetly nested in trees are the sonic point of entry. Responding to the proximity of the passer-by, a multilingual invitation to “come closer” is followed by subterranean sonic landscape recordings emitted from several bird’s nests located in tree branches overhead. As a second point of entry, participants are encouraged to pin their experiences as a feedback loop to the Sonic Pond web site.
