The Abundant Sensate is a statement regarding what constitutes waste in our environment. The Sensate is a sound sculpture. The interactive art piece resonates sound from discarded industrial and medical waste from which it is made. The materials used are disposed of on a mega-scale by industry.
The thought of interactivity was a significant concept to my piece, as society is responsible for the waste that is accumulating on the planet. Perfectly sound materials are thrown away, creating a growing unmanageable world of waste for future generations. Many products are made of precious metals yet are disposed of because they are to labour intensive to recycle. The Sensate responds to the presence of spectators. Viewers interact with the sculpture by touching it and contemplate the materials through their senses so they might deeply question what constitutes waste and how that sounds.
Harry Bertoia’s Sonambient Barn was the work that inspired my piece. Bertoia’s piece was made of wire and emitted sounds when touched.
