0601, Tactile Headset, 2014–17
Four wooden spheres hang from above. The spheres vibrate against a user's head. Each sphere vibrates with a unique pattern, similar to the way four audio speakers might project different sounds from different directions in a room. Sound artist Alessandro Perini created two Tactile Headsets for this exhibition: one for standing, and one for sitting.
