Unwanted Sound(s)


The technical definition of noise is unwanted sound. Tinnitus is a human hearing condition based on the presence of a constant, non-regulated and unwanted sound which is caused by excessive or cumulative exposure to sound. Unwanted Sound(s) is a public interactive web-based sound installation in New York City’s Times Square which aims to question the arbitrary, non-regulated and massive presence of advertising in public spaces, as well as its capacity to distort the perception of urban environments. The installation uses high-pitched frequencies that resemble those present in Tinnitus to create an analogy between the overwhelming, non-regulated visual landscape of Times Square and the hearing condition.
