Optofonica Capsule [2008]

The Optofonica Capsule is a futuristic design/architectural object, featuring a mechanized structure whose parts form an autonomous immersive audiovisual environment. The shell-like shape of the capsule wraps the body of the visitor to optimize the experience of surround and Tactile Sound. Low frequencies are transduced directly into the bone-system of the human body, thereby converting the sound into hyper-perceivable vibration; this adds a completely new sensorial dimension to the fruition of the piece and expands the possibilities of creation by the artists.
