sound map visualization workshopPosted: 05/02/2011
This workshop was held April 30-May 1st at MoKS -center for art and social practice in beautiful south Estonia. Following the first phase of the project, which was to collect data on sonic landmarks, common sounds and unique sonic effects, that can be heard throughout the city. This was done in cooperation with anthropology students from Tallinn University, taking part in the “Soundscapes, perception and design” course offered by Carlo Cubero this past spring.
Following this research phase we are entering the period where we need to visualize the data, that is, translate it into a visual form in order to graphically lay out the information for the printed form. Carsten Stabenow and Andreas Töpfer will be designing and editing the final design of the map, but in order to do so we needed to brainstorm what a printed sound map could look like and edit some of the data collected and shape it into a usable form.
