This multi-sensory installation called ‘HadroScan’, uses the Large Hadron Collider as a reference, where sound and light will circulate around the 360-degree walkway scanning the space for its particles – in the case of the library these are fragments of language.
Bespoke infrasonic speakers (built for the dynamics of the space) along with Hypersonic Sound Systems (directional ultrasound) and regular speakers will circulate 3 ranges of frequencies. Visitors will experience stimuli that cause the body to enter a flux of affect – sound becoming something felt as well as heard.
The light work will be synched according to presence and motion so that they eventually travel together mimicking the scanner effect. Initially disorientating, audiences will move through a situation that gradually settles into rhythmical order.
