synchronous displacement is an iterative process of translation from light to sound to vibration.
in this floor mounted artwork, shifting patterns of light in an array of LEDs below a diffusing medium are tracked by software. the patterns are translated into a sound composition whose components are based on recordings made while constructing and prototyping the piece.
the composition is played through two small speakers, and a small, low frequency oscillator mounted below the LEDs, transposing the sound to low-frequency vibrations. vibration sensors connected to the LEDs alter the patterns of light, which alters the sound, which alters the light, etc.
