IG Live: Yuri Suzuki’s Sound Bubbles
Our new series of Everyday Experiments challenges the way we think about safety and security at home. Meet Yuri Suzuki discussing his experiment, Sound Bubbles, in conversation with SPACE10’s Georgina McDonald, on 10 June, 4pm CEST, on Instagram Live.
Now, more than ever, we find ourselves using the home for a myriad of activities. A living room becomes an office; a kitchen becomes a call centre. This constant presence of activity challenges our sense of privacy, not only regarding personal space, but also sound. With Sound Bubbles, experience designer Yuri Suzuki and his team set out to explore how we might be able to harness sound itself to create moments of localised silence.
‘Although humans have an innate ability to screen out specific sounds or frequencies, we face an increasing number of daily sound pollutants as well as a growing need for privacy,’ Yuri explains.
Sound Bubbles would allow you to construct silent zones of privacy within the home using spatial audio.
Tune in to our Instagram Live on 10 June at 4pm CEST, for a closer look at Sound Bubbles. Yuri and SPACE10’s Georgina McDonald will discuss the tension between transparency and security, and Yuri’s creative approach as a designer.
