Abstract

The Chemo singing bowl is 3D printed from a year of blood pressure recorded during chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. This version of the acoustic sonification singing bowl introduces 3D splines as a way of mapping the data into the form. The irregularity of the dataset makes for inharmonic and dissonant acoustic effects.

“it sounds exactly as I imagine to have sounded while having chemo! It’s painful to experience it, but quite accurate – the sound is dry and heavy, without much resonance, just like I felt!” Maja Kuzmovic

Out of Hand: Materialising the Digital is an exploration of art, craft, design and science in the light of ever-evolving technologies, processes and materials. Such technological advances are changing the way we conceive of and work with materials, and blurring boundaries. The results are opening up exciting relationships between art and innovation, materials and techniques. The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences brings together the work of almost 60 international artists, architects, designers and scientists, from fields as diverse as sculpture, furniture, fashion, transport and medicine.

Some of the issues and concepts in Out of Hand are further explored in this limited edition publication through two essays by MAAS Principal Curator Matthew Connell and academic Thomas Birtchnell, and a conversation with Ron Labaco, who curated the first iteration of Out of Hand in 2013 at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York. Organised around the seven themes of Analog to Post digital, Modelling Nature, New Geometries, Rebooting Revivals, Pattern as
Structure, Remixing the Figure, and Process, Out of Hand is a timely examination of our increasingly interdisciplinary world in the post digital era
