Broadcast

I made these two pieces while thinking about a specific position for a listener. They are designed to amplify, reflect and focus sound to specific points altering the experience of listening depending on position. The dishes are parabolic with a focal length of 655mm relating to the wavelength of the high C in the prototype. I cast them in a stiff material: concrete, so that they reflect as much and absorb as little sound as possible. One is static and the other dynamic, acknowledging variances in ear height of a potential listener.
