created using raspberry pi and openframeworks, ‘murmur’ is an architectural prosthesis that enables the communication between passers-by and the wall upon which it is connected by simulating the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual world. based on a collaborative and open approach, participating studios chevalvert, 2roqs, polygraphik and splank have designed and created the ‘echo’s room’, making reference both to the audio effect achieved and to greek mythology. it creates a magical effect, a mystery in the way that sound waves filter through the space. the installation focuses on movement, manifesting an unconventional dialogue between the public and the wall. it represents the key technique of the murmur device, turning sound waves into light waves.

Abstract:
Idea
“Murmur” is an architectural prosthesis that enables the communication between passers-by and the wall upon which it is connected. The installation simulates the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual worlds. There is a magical effect, a mystery in the way that sound waves move. “Murmur” focuses on this movement, thus creating an unconventional dialogue between the public and the wall.
Object
Within the frame of the project, a specific device was designed and created in order to collect the murmurs of the public. This object has been called “Echo Chamber”, making reference to Greek mythology. It represents not only the key technique of the “Murmur” device, but also its magical aspect, turning sound waves into light waves.
Biography:
Based on a collaborative and open approach, the Murmur group has gathered around the project since early 2013. Four disciplines are represented: visual design, object design, sound design and a magical touch of programming. The participating studios are Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank. Each of them has provided not only their expertise in their own specialties but also their insights on the other three.

Ideia
“Murmur” é uma prótese arquitetônica que permite a comunicação entre transeuntes e o mural no qual está ligada. A instalação simula o movimento de ondas sonoras, criando uma ponte luminosa entre os mundos físico e virtual. Há um efeito mágico, um mistério no modo como as ondas sonoras se movem. “Murmur” foca-se nesse movimento, criando, assim, um diálogo incomum entre o público e o mural.
Objeto
No âmbito do projeto, um dispositivo específico foi projetado e criado para coletar os murmúrios do público. Esse objeto foi chamado de “câmara de eco”, fazendo referência à mitologia grega. Ele representa não apenas a técnica crucial do dispositivo “Murmur”, mas também seu aspecto mágico, transformando as ondas sonoras em ondas de luz.
Biography:
Com base em uma abordagem colaborativa e aberta, o grupo Murmur está reunido em torno do projeto desde o início de 2013. Quatro disciplinas são representadas: design visual, design de objeto, design de som e um toque mágico de programação. Os estúdios participantes são Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik e Splank. Cada um deles forneceu não apenas suas experiências em suas próprias especialidades, mas também suas percepções sobre as outras três.
