Silent Space Stand Still
Held at the Tzisdaraki Mosque in Athens, Silent Space Stand Still explored the strategies used by four different sound artists. We created an identity for the exhibition based on the idea of visualizing sound. Our inspiration came primarily from the circular arrangements of the mosque’s architecture and also from Ernst Chladni, a German physicist and musician who experimented with sound vibrations. Chladni's technique consisted of drawing a bow over a piece of metal whose surface was lightly covered with sand. The metal plate was bowed until it reached resonance, when the vibration causes the sand to move, outlining the nodal lines. The patterns formed by these lines were the starting point for the visual language we created.
