Everything vibrates – from the smallest atom on Earth to the furthest star in space. Their frequencies surround and immerse us and yet the vast majority leave no imprint.
hertz gives a glimpse into this hidden universe, making inaudible sound tangible, visible and real. Sense the imperceptible soundtrack of a city in real-time and immerse yourself in its deep resonance. Listen to the secret songs of stars found in the constellations of Cygnus and Lyra. Harness their harmonics to generate beautiful visual patterns in sand on vibrating plates.
hertz encourages curiosity, questioning perceptions of our planet and place in the cosmos through sensory experiences.
