Room Tone

Working with architects from around the world, I sent them three recordings of my apartment in Berlin. Trying to capture the space in sound, the recordings document the ambient, material and dimensional conditions of the apartment. The architects were then given the task of making a physical model of the apartment by having the sounds as their only directing information. In this way, a process of translation and interpretation unfolds, incorporating an understanding, however factual or fantastical, of the auditory into the process of rendering a spatial form.
