Body sound visualizing machines that serve to raise awareness of their existence through a “sound footprint” that varies from person to person and space. The body is an activator that defines the actions for each machine, resulting in a visual representation based on the theory “Kiki and Bouba” in the form of “auras”. The activation variations in these “auras” depend on 3 measurements of the sound: The frequency (number of repeats of the sound) for the throat or voice, the volume (intensity with which it is produced) for the hand, and the duration (time) for the head with which it is produced.

Head/Duration

The duration of the sound modifies the full or partial deployment of the two fans. The moment the sound stops, they start to descend.

Hand/Volume

Variation of deployment in degrees of the fans depending on the intensity with which the sound of the hands is produced.

Throat/Frequency

The sounds produced with the throat define whether the wave is severe or acute, resulting in a range of opaque purple tonality for bass and a bright yellow color for treble, exemplifying the theory of Kiki Bouba. Serious right. Left sharp, neutral does not move. (Yes/No/No)
