Electroacoustic Chair

Sounds picked up from the immediate environment by a microphone, are relayed via a customized high voltage amplifier to insulated contact plates which form the seat and back of the Electroacoustic Chair. 

The input signal from the microphone is transformed into a high voltage potential which has the possibility to be experienced as an electric shock on making contact with the chair. The work gives physical presence to the dimension of sound and explores the persecutory effects of environmental noise.
