Masaru Tabei and Yasuno Miyauchi
This is a sound object that you don’t hear with your ears but by vibrations transmitted through the body. The material used and the shape of the object invite the visitor to embrace it and to rest their chin on it. Vibrations are transmitted through the jaw and the sound can be heard. The experience generates an overwhelming sense of the small object’s huge presence.

Yasuno Miyauchi was born in 1980 in Tokyo, Japan and is currently studying timebased media at IAMAS and also studied Music Composition at Tokyo Gakugei University.
