Hapticscapes gives form and structure to invisible forces — vibration & sound.
This participatory work invites visitors to discover and play with invisible structures & superstructures. An architecture of the invisible – made of sounds & vibrations — augments the familiar realities of real cities & spaces.
The spatial composer places sound & haptic triggers in hyperlocal space, saving them to a persistent AR overlay on the world. Recorded sounds can be stored permanently in the space the size of a single flower. Visitors uncover the scapes by passing the Divining Rod through the invisible voids contained by the structures.
