Yumi SASAKI + Dorita TAKIDO
The sound of bug’s footsteps that human cannot hear normally.
Bug’s Beat transmits the amplified sound of bug’s footsteps directly to human auditory through directional speaker.
And by vibrating the listening chair through vibration speaker every time the bug takes a step, this device makes the observer to sense sound as bodily sensation.
From the little bug one “visually” sees, one can “auditory” hear the bug’s footsteps as a large sound, and can “tactility” feel the sound as a vibration. A gap between visual, actual auditory, and tactile will be formed, and the brain will addle to the scale of oneself and of small bug’s life.
An interactive system of life and sound that arouses new sense by sight and auditory and bring new sense of values.
