Resonant Surface 01 by Christine Yogiaman and Ken Tracy

Seven horns crafted from wood veneer, each measuring 10 feet long, have been coiled and shaped together to help amplify a person’s voice, separated by 6-millimeter thick aluminum frames. The shape, initially a geodesic dome in the Buckminster Fuller mold, was reshaped into a bent octagon to accommodate the horns. The installation works as a resonating engine just like a trumpet horn, and distributes the sound so well, it’s actually hard to hear yourself when you’re standing behind it.
