Acoustic Chamber

The act of listening to a landscape tends to be neglected in favour of its visual impact. The inexplicable, poetic and place-specific phenomenon of sound is often lost.

Arissara Reed and Davin Nurimba, students at the University of Sydney,  have formed an artistic partnership to design and create a work for Sculpture by the Sea, 2015.

Their work, Acoustic Chamber, is a sculpture that resonates its own sound environment as well as the echo of the ocean. To enhance the experience of being immersed in sound the sculpture has been adapted as an open-ended Möbius band. An opening facing the ocean will capture the atmospheric soundscapes which will be redirected through the form and released at an opposite opening towards the public walkway. The form as a curved chamber will transmute and modify sound as it passes through as well as resonate the acoustic events taking place inside it; a conversation etc.

As an interactive sculpture people will be able to walk up to and experience the acoustic capacity of the space and their influence upon it. The sculpture becomes a sonic portrait of the complex relationship between form, landscape and participant.

Reed and Nurimba are seeking donations, however great or small, to help complete their work. Donating to this project presents a unique opportunity to support emerging local artists as well as directly contributing to the world’s largest annual public outdoor sculpture exhibition.

The pair were awarded the Clitheroe Foundation Scholarship in recognition of the ambitious nature of their work. As a donor you will be able to experience the work first hand at Sculptures by the Sea this year.

Arissara Reed and Davin Nurimba form an artistic partnership that makes use of interdisciplinary practices and incorporates their diverse interests. As emerging artists, Reed and Nurimba endeavour to explore, and better understand, space in relation to the latent capacity contained within its volumes.

Arissara Reed is currently studying Science and Architecture at the University of Sydney and, as an artist, has an avid interest in acoustic structures. These pursuits have found mutual expression in her work. She is interested in nature as stage and actor, and how these distinct roles can be assigned through the interplay of structure or form upon an environment. In particular, she seeks to allow nature, as an entity and phenomena, to unfurl as a subject. Arissara is undertaking a 12 month mentorship exchange with German artist Lukas Kühne.

Davin Nurimba is studying Architecture at the University of Sydney with a focus on urban spaces. Davin has technical expertise in 3D modeling and is inspired by the interplay between art and technology. In particular, he works to find the means to realising artistic endeavours.
