Zero = 0dB is a work about visualizing and understanding the non-audible and non-visual acoustic properties of a space. Through found objects these acoustic properties are researched and visualized trough sculptures. With this project I aim to research what it means to capture non-audible and non-visual information. The sculptures that result from the research are presented in a way that invites the viewer to re-contextualize these properties. The work that is Zero = 0dB focuses on being objective and disconnected from any emotional value.
