EXHIBITION HISTORY: Museum of Contemporary Art, Roskilde, Denmark. Kunstrum Snæversti, December 2014 - March 2015

Columns is a study of the physicality of sound, where 16 kinetic sculptures investigate the visualization of inaudible sound.

Acting as a base of each vertical structure, a loudspeaker produces a frequency below the human hearing range (infrasonics). The loudspeaker is extended with a metallic spring, hereby sending vibrations resulting in longitudinal waves into the spring. As a bi-product of this action - being the only audible sound of the installation - the restrained sound of the metallic material of the spring can be found, as it reacts to the vibrations of the speaker.
