Sound Requires A Medium centers on a room-wide installation comprising 10,000 intertwined earbuds. Visitors walk through the labyrinthine structure to take in the dynamic sounds emanating from the earbuds that come together to create a rich and blossoming soundscape, physically pulsating from the sheer quantity of musical sources. The exhibition also includes a series of musical objects made of unexpected materials such as a mechanical bird whistle, a “talking” wall, a sound work heard through one’s teeth when biting a straw, and a shaking piano.
The exhibition was on show at the CCA in Tel Aviv in 2016, curated by Chen Tamir. It will be on display at Centre Pompidou in Paris in autumn 2018.
