TESSEL
Kinetic Sound Installation by David Letellier + Lab(au)

The 4x2m ceiling installation explores the relationships between sound and space. Made of 40 individual triangles, Tessel “questions the link between geometry and movement, while continuing the quest for synesthetic perception of sonic and spatial phenomenons.” 12 motors and 8 audio transducers produce the formal and audible transformations of the installation over time.

What I find most poetic about the project is the manner in which sound becomes a near-tangible property of one’s spatial experience; the fluid transformations of the tessellated panels redirect the sound in a manner moves through the space. It engages an occupant as it travels to and through their audible range, and consequently reaffirms their relationship to the space.
