Noise Water Meat: A History of Sound in the Arts

Noise Water Meat: A History of Sound in the Arts

MIT Press Design Department, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1999

Description

The title is derived from modern performance art and the recorded sounds and noises that accompany it: water dripping , screams and bestial cries. The biggest challenge was to interpret sounds into the visual realm. The man’s mouth is manipulated to look like ripples in water. It also gives the illusion of a cacophony of vibrating noises.
