Using natural forces and processes, Ricky van Broekhoven researches ways to make sound vibrations perceptible. His works physically manifest the omnipresence of noise. He presents a series of machines that make evident various processes for visualizing the invisible.
Audiograph is a device that plots sound energy in a spiral motion. It uses an inverted pick-up to translate audio into kinetic energy, allowing sound vibrations to be rendered as graphic output. Sonoscope uses a subwoofer to generate oscillating waves on water.
Solid Vibration is a collaboration with Olivier van Herpt, who designed and built a 3D ceramic printer. Audio vibrations are applied to manipulate the printing process, creating a spatial and material embodiment of sound.
