Clams (2019)

Sonification, kinetic movement, vacuum forming, recycled plastic, evolving soundscape, water quality sensor, (API) data streaming

In nature, clams are detectors of pollutants; they serve as tiny filtration systems. Inspired by this natural phenomenon, Marco Barotti presents Clams, a kinetic sound installation triggered by water quality. Data, recorded from an industry-standard water purity sensor placed in Asturian waters is converted into an audio signal. This signal generates a live evolving soundscape that initiates the opening and closing movements of the clam sculptures. Sound and motion unite to create an experience that allows the audience to see and hear the water quality. The Clams sculptures are made from recycled industrial plastic waste. The art work intends to raise awareness about water and plastic pollution.
