using long exposure photography

Team: Arvind Sanjeev | Bora Kim | Esther Bretschneider | Benedict Huebener

The Intro

Sound Spike is an exploration in visualising sound using a microphone and an RGB LED light embedded in a laser-cut light diffuser. With the microphone, we measured the sound decibels being emitted from a sound source, and visualised the decibel ranges with the colours red, blue and purple. Long exposure photography brings to life the sound characteristics of an audio source in a visual way.
