House of Mirrors
Saturday 11th May - Sunday 7th July
Opening event Saturday 11th May, 2 - 4pm
House of Mirrors is a soundscape collaboration project between sculptor Rob Olins and composer Doug Benford.
The work presents a series of sound pockets which comprises of acoustic mirrors and speakers that are arranged in such a way as to create a sound environment.
As the viewer moves about the space the sound changes and any sound that the viewer makes will also be amplified and directed. The sound recordings are natural and man-made sounds recorded in Jaywick - revealing a sonic snapshot of the coastal location.
The acoustic mirrors are a simple way of amplifying sound. They are based on First World War aircraft early warning technology, which were very accurately constructed to focus sounds from far away to a single point.
