It’s a huge installation, composed by 1629 earphones embedded in a 180 cm diameter wooden parabolic antenna and 24 electronic boards that distribute sound from a mp3 player to each earphone. I loved the idea of converting the “personal experience” to a “public experience”. I think it does a great job at showcasing how amazing simple things can scale, and become the part of a bigger whole.
I think it’s perfectly executed, and well documented. However I’d love to see the frequency response of the installation too, as it is something unique, and perhaps never been done before. It would have been great to see the impulse response data of the room to see how the installation physically sounds like without the room too.
Without this data, I feel like although it’s doing a great job converting a personal experience into a public one, it still doesn’t have a “personal” experience aspect to it. Perhaps with an example of how the sound changes from personal earphones to this installation could make it a better exemplary installation.
