The sound environment that surrounds us can be stored visually so it can be interpreted as images. The coding method provides a path between different medias, thus it enables a universal interpretation.

I prepared a prosthesis for an old digital camera, wherewith it is able to transform the data of an audio signal to visual information without any light. I used city noises for this project from different sources. I connected the audio stream to the circuit of the camera, furthermore I modified the controller signs of the image processor as well. As a result the camera took meditative photo objects from a basically annoying phenomenon.

4 gicleé prints, each 24x18 cm in 4 special boxes, WAV audio, with MP3 player and headphones
