As a species the human race has a love affair with sound. We enjoy all kinds of sound from classical music to hard rock to even the sound of thunderstorms. Fake Love & installation artist Aramique together with Sonos have opened two exhibitions in New York & Los Angeles that allow users to play visually with sound. This visual excursion in sound, entitled PLAY, encourages visitors to play with sound by using an iPad to select their favorite music tracks and tap the Sonos speakers to change the colors projected on the white walls creating an explosion of sound and color.
This unique user experience showcases just how powerful imagery and sound can be together and how great design can truly change the experience of everyday life—something all designers should keep in mind as they go forth and conquer their design projects. Check out the video below to see the installations in action.
