A Girl Said (2007), 3D print sound sculpture, acrylic resin, 10″ * 10″ * 2″
This project was inspired by my exploration and desire to capture sound in a tangible, solid form. Visualizaing the topology of sound as a three dimensional place consisting of frequency, time and intensity, I conceived of a method to turn it into an object. A Girl Said was made from the Fast Fourier Transform analysis data of a female’s voice saying – ‘I love you’. I examined, rendered, and modeled the data and materialize it into a 3D print object via a rapid prototype machine.
