Mind the World: Globe

From The works of Living World (efish, Kyoto; STARNET, Mashiko in 2006)

An installation display of Sound Bum, the project launched in 1999 that travels the world “listening to sounds”.

The locations Sound Bum has visited to date are indicated on a white globe. Upon donning a pair of wireless headphones and touching one of the points on the globe, the visitor hears myriad sounds recorded in that location.
As other visitors touch different points, they too hear sounds from those locations. Each person hears a distinct set of sounds – the sounds corresponding to the location they touch – as if their fingertips have become stethoscopes.

By touching someone listening to sounds, the sounds they hear are conveyed, and you hear them too. The mechanism is an application of the IR headphone system discovered by Hiroshi Kanechiku, the engineer for this exhibition.

Living World first met Kanechiku in 2005 while working on a project, and began working together to develop “Mind the World: Globe” in March 2006.

Living World has worked with sound designer Yoshihiro Kawasaki on our entire series of Sound Bum exhibits, including “Listen!” (2002, National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation), “Mind the World” (2004, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa), and “Table of sounds” (2005, STARNET ZONE). “Mind the World: Globe” represents the most recent version of Sound Bum exhibits following floor, wall, and tabletop versions.
