++CANCELLED++ PLANT-BASED haptic Sound
What does sound actually feel like?
This sound-feeling lounger was created as part of a joint inclusion project by the OSTRALE – Center for Contemporary Art and the sound artist Rüdiger Wenk.
With the help of this lounger, people with a limited sense of hearing can perceive in real time how a plant sounds, as well.
Sonification information is obtained from the plant itself, the soil, and the environment via sensors.
Divided into partial areas of the “lying surface,” acoustic signals are set into oscillation via structure-borne sound transducers. In this way, an individual vibration pattern is created for each plant and each environment, with the help of which we can immerse ourselves in the world of those who hear differently.

A haven of cultural dialogue that can overcome social exclusion and global challenges to build social bridges….https://ostrale.de/en/Projects/Aktion-Mensch.html
