The units

The WHISPERING WALL is a wall that produces sounds and performs audio-works stored in a virtual cloud. The sound comes from small, computerized units, especially developed for this project. Together they form a collective of portable, interactive, individual units, which sound-connect one place to another. It’s a global, internet-of-things work of art.

The units have internet access, they are individually connected to the cloud, realtime. You can take them anywhere. And that’s exactly the point: to take them to a specific place, have them interact with that place, merge, or maybe take over, or sound-connect that place to another place somewhere in the world. And then, after a certain amount of time, leave and take them elsewhere.

The Units are designed and hand built by Thijs de Bont of deBont Amps.
