Sound Affects

Year 2011

SoundAffects translated the sensory overflow of a New York City street into a serene audiovisual expression of a moment in time and space. A wall with embedded sensors and lights observed its surroundings, harmonising yellow cabs with evening rain and jackhammers. This installation expressed Parsons’ mission to teach holistic design by reimagining perceptions and considering complex systems, while celebrating its urban campus which is integrated into the heart of the city.
