Hear Here / MFA Design Thesis 2015


Hear Here is about the use of sound as an effective medium of communication to improve intimacy and longevity of long-distance relationships.Initial field research determined that the use of environmental sound as an alternative means of communicating, in real time, what is occurring in the respective lives of each person in a relationship enables a couple to feel closer emotionally. It even creates the illusion that they are physically closer. Moreover, auditory perception offers a strong balance between reality and imagination, and can lead to a synchronizing of the couple’s senses. Most importantly, constant communication with partners through sound fulfills couples’ most essential emotional need to feel their partner’s company.
