Is it possible to display urban noise as a real-time sound sculpture? Art installation developed by the Analema Group over the last two years invited the audience to experience urban sound from around the Tate as trajectories of sound, travelling through the space of Tate Exchange at Tate Modern. Four real-time streams, from construction noise, to railroad tracks were visualised on the panoramic windows of the Tate’s monumental architecture. Through direct experience, the audience learned about the effects of noise, while shaping and designing their own soundscape.
The multi-sensory art installation was available to visitors of the Tate Exchange London in November 2019. The Analema Group, a collective operating between art, technology and science, specialises on immersive experiences. At Tate Exchange, the idea was to present alternate forms of sound experiences. The exhibition was also flanked by a rich program of talks, and a workshop with high uptake by scientists, other artists, and local communities.
