IDEA: Real-time three-dimensional representations of sound. 

WHAT: The Audio Foam Cutter transforms sound into styrofoam. A hot-wire cutter mounted on a servo motor which is controlled by audio signals, allows users to real-time cut the sound input vertically into the material. The resulting cutouts can be used to assemble casting molds or they can stand alone as  sound sculptures.

WHY: A fully analog and kinetic way of sound visualisation.
