Listening to Changing Shapes

Rahel’s artistic research project focused on the perception of dynamic shapes moving through aural space. She explored the limits of spatial hearing by transforming dynamic shapes into sound within a three-dimensional aural space. She combined an ambisonic surround space with a bone-conducted binaural space. This project was situated at the intersections of creative, empirical, and technical methodologies, thus addressing the topic of transformative processes in scientific and artistic research. The first outcomes of Rahel’s study were presented in a small exhibition at the Collegium.
