Kankaku Antenna exhibition at Setagaya CLICK (Tokyo, 2002)

Our contribution to the Kankaku Antenna exhibition (2002.10.10-18; curated by Trunk) held at the Setagaya CLICK (Culture & Life Information Center) “Seikatsu Kobo” was a 1/10 scale mini version of the Sound Bum exhibit presented at the Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
With tiny speakers in hand, visitors searched a world-map table for sounds.

The worksheet handed out at MeSci. There, sounds from 24 locations around the world were arranged on a circular carpet 16 meters in diameter, likened to a map of the world. Here, we reduced the map to 1/10 scale and presented it in the form of a table.

By placing tiny speakers made of cardboard tubes on the tabletop map, sounds of the world can be heard. There in the palm of your hand birds start to sing, or the music of a street-corner band starts to play.

Visitors could also listen to “the sound of themselves” with stethoscopes in a separate corner of the gallery.
