Society has become defined by webs of communication. Never before has a message been as widely distributed as has recently been allowed by modern technology. With this distribution comes distortion. A message becomes more abstracted the more people pass it along; an inevitable case of broken telephone. Stratatone replicates this concept. A pattern, the message should be simple to repeat, yet as the commotion of those around it increases and becomes distorted; moving, growing, shrinking. As people transverse the surrounding area, noise peaks amplify the form and create a unique image over the course of time.
Acrylic panels were suspended from the ceiling, layered horizontally across the room. Each panel had a drawing apparatus that were made to draw a pattern. The pattern initially is uniform and uninterrupted, but as the night progresses the sound and activity from the visitors of the space will begin to distort this pattern. The installation will respond directly to sound levels, altering the pattern and creating a distorted image. As the night goes on, the image will become more and more abstracted, as the panels become saturated with colour.
