Particle Waves is a kinetic sound installation inspired by sea waves. The installation comprises of 12 kinetic bowls, servo motors and thousands of metallic beads. Arranged in a 4x3 grid, these bowls are controlled by a wave algorithm, moving them in a wave like motion, at times ferociously, at times peaceful and relaxing. Each of the bowls contain hundreds of metallic beads that forms a noise like sound that combines with all 12 bowls collectively, forming a soundscape that reminds us of waves and the sea.
