The purpose of this project is to explore the ways in which rhetoric manages to merge different sensory experiences. To achieve this, it focuses on blending sight and sound.

What was incorporeal becomes tangible. What was two-dimensional becomes three-dimensional.

The project was approached in two different ways. The first one is an installation that draws the movement of soundwaves through the reflection of a laser. It was possible to propagate and even merge different frequency tones to create a visual representation of what these frequency waves look like, in an almost three-dimentional way.


The second approach takes advantage of long-exposure photography to explore the same concept. Every image I propose portrays small segments of music from a variety of genres. It explores how fragments of a composition can become visual lilliputian identity cards for the composition in its entirety. The part is already the whole.
