Picó Subwoofer Mirror Installation

Subwoofer Mirror 02 THUMB.jpg

IDEA: Use low frequency vibrations to transform dancers’ reflections as they move to the beat, inspired by Colombian Picó sound systems.

WHAT: A big subwoofer with a reflective surface, made from 25 µm thin polyethylene terephthalate mirror foil, titled 'Picó Blitz'. When activated, the low sound frequencies create concave and convex distortions in the reflective foil and produces a stroboscopic and blurring effects. 

WHY: A designed version of a colourful street music culture artefact, these colossal sounds and vibrating images combined create an intoxicating interactive experience.
