Hearing Hands is an interactive sound object that invites participants to immerse their hands and listen . As they explore the object, an ambient generative composition dictated by their hand movements runs alongside a hyper-real version of the original sound, allowing the participant to observe their hands in relation to the sonic textures. The combination of the sound with the physical properties of the object incite entrancing interactions, as the object cascades, swells and sounds to the movement.
This piece was imagined as a way to reflect on the ways in which communication technologies present both spaces for connection and dissociation through ritual usage.
