Abstract:

The concept of sound sculpture can embrace a rich variety of artistic manifestations and disciplines since it contains music, plastic arts, and performance, to say the least. Even the conceptual and space design or the skills and crafts necessary to transform physical materials demonstrates its interdisciplinary potential. Sensattice is an emerging sound sculpture proposal, which takes advantage of organic raw materials considered waste to convert them into biopolymers and explores their acoustic and haptic potential taking "skin and bone" as conceptual premises to synthesize two fundamental materials. Such materials were obtained by applying biomaterial engineering and 3D modeling and printing as parallel processes. Sensattice seems to be an emerging system since it is not reduced to mere materials but involves people and situated epistemic approaches that literally shape a sculptural lattice through the sensory and symbolic perception of skin and bones that can be sounded before, during and after the sculptural construction.
