Wela: "Whisperers", audio installation, 2011, Copernicus Science Center, Discovery Park, Warsaw, Poland

 

Installation "The Whisperers" consists of 16 metal columns put in the middle of the park of discovery. The olumns are equipped with sensors and speakers in order to detect visitors and distribute natural sounds such as the whisper of a stream, rain, wind ... People can do real-time sound spatialization on the type of sound and played on the sound effects.
The visual and sound installation, compared to contemporary organs, symbolizes a virtual-real time in which we live and transports the viewer to the fourth more spiritual dimension.
The installation also shows the paradox of contemporary home desire to approach to nature by artificial means.
