In this workshop, our UK collaborators, Ju Gosling and Julie Newman, joined us in Montreal to create vibrational art objects that could translate sound into sensory and tactile vibrations. Part of our goal was to use reclaimed and recycled materials from Concordia University’s Centre for Creative Reuse (CUCCR) to demonstrate how artists can create accessible vibrating artwork using a sustainable and inexpensive model. Several participants throughout the day joined us to lend a hand and experience their own sound files in a completely new way. By wiring electronic sound files through our vibrating transducers and placing them into objects, we were able to distinguish how the resonances of voice, instrument, and nature are felt and understood by our bodies
