VOICEBERGS

Overview

An interactive piece was created to celebrate the Van Dusen Botnical Gardens’ Festival of Lights 30th anniversary.

The result was the Voicebergs. These audio reactive low-poly icebergs glow when people talk into the microphone located on the shore. Sounds are translated into light, causing pulses of color to travel to the sculptures, which flicker and glow in reaction to the arrival of the signal.

Although they appear both extremely intricate and delicate, the Voicebergs weathered two windstorms and the pond freezing over, and were removed unscathed, a testament to the hardiness of the seemingly delicate sculptures.
