Roomination is an interactive sound and light installation. Visitors become the performers in this piece. Inspired by ritualistic meditation, “Roomination” which is a mixture of “room” and “introspection” invites viewers to understand the repercussions of their actions in a space and time frame. On a material level, sound interacts with the room making the floor vibrate, inviting visitors -which are asked to take off their shoes before entering the installation- to lay down and feel the sound with their whole body. Small bells, located on a speaker facing upwards, resonate from the sonic vibrations of the speaker, producing a new layer of their own sounds.
