The Sound of Silence explores and iterates on the possibilities of silent visualization. It shapes a dual immersive experience for the viewer that encompasses both the visual and auditory senses, aiming to manifest the power of silence in a noisy environment using alternative means.
Hearing the sound of silence could be a deeply personal and subjective experience. Silence is often associated with a peaceful, calm, and meditative state, where external distractions and noise are eliminated. In this state, one can become more aware of one’s inner thoughts and emotions and the subtle sounds of one’s surroundings that are usually drowned out by louder noises. For some people, listening to the sound of stillness can be a spiritual or mystical experience, where they feel a connection to something greater than themselves. For others, it may be a simple and refreshing break from the constant noise of daily life. The experience that this project shapes is unique and can elicit a range of emotions and thoughts.
The Sound of Silence categorizes and visualizes different scenarios of the ‘silent-hearing’ experience. It transforms the sense of silence through photography, digital art, and print media, accompanied by corresponding audio.
