The "Soundbody" is a project to explore non-verbal communication to overcome the border as a language.
In our daily lives, we rely mainly on visual information. When we communicate online, visual images like video chat also help us to communicate more smoothly. However, we wondered if this easy-to-understand visual information is sometimes robbing us of our imagination.
By focusing on the limited information of sound, exchanging recorded data, and listening carefully to each other's sounds, we believe we can feel more deeply what is happening in distant places. Even if we are not in the same space, through the sounds emanating from each other's bodies and the ambient sounds recorded together, we will be able to share the same space experience beyond the boundaries.
