Pool of Sound is an interactive two channel sound installation. As visitors walk through the dynamic space, they push the sound of water with their bodies. The enchanted zone literally becomes a pool of sound where sound becomes substance, and along with water, it becomes something to be physically and playfully encountered. Within this installation, sound becomes more palpable as does our relationship to resources and to our environment. Sound, water and movement are made (in)to matter. The more one moves, the louder and stronger the sound of water. The viewers’ bodies leave no traces except those of the sound waves created by their presence.
