Audiovisual exposition consists of vizualizations of words, phrases, music and also includes videos presenting concept and the creative process.
The Aqua Lingua works combine water, sound, physics, digital technologies and art. Waves of human voice are converted into water waves every time creating an exclusive image which is photographed. Water, this very sensitive natural media, has unique potential to recreate every frequency of uttered words, music or any other sound. The patented Aqua Lingua technology transmits all the frequencies of durable sound into water and captures in single image. Thus, everyone can create a picture of personal voice; even the same word uttered by different people make water vibrate in absolutely different way. For a sound recording a QR code is generated and the artwork is heard when scanned with a smartphone.

Free access, working days, from 10 am to 5 pm, upon presentation of an ID
