Sound Ray

This unique ceiling installation by Studio Bernal aims to create ever-so-subtle changes in a room’s acoustic and visual atmospheres by making articulated changes in the form of its surface. Inspired the the animal of the same name, the Manta makes adjustments in position through multi-modal input including sound, stereoscopic vision, touch, and even brainwaves, changing according to the actions of the people around it.

The installation was built in Studio 1 at EMPAC, which is an acoustically inert space, so the designers were able to audibly perceive how geometry affects sound in realtime.

Designer: Studio Bernal
