The Sonos exhibition was intended as an immersive series of environments employing strategies of metamorphoic architecture. An emotional connection between music, space and pattern is experienced by the audience as their bodies move throughout Sonos Studio. Projections and materials distort and misrepresent form, creating three somewhat indeterminate environments: serene, playful and explosive. The explosive atmosphere is constantly fragmenting through patterning and the inversion of form and shadow.

The playful space’s pink reflective insides are energized by projection creating vivacious and unpredictable surroundings, while the “serene” space remains comfortable, soft and stable. These material and spatial effects manifest sound as pattern, light, shadow and color, simultaneously dematerializing the crystalline forms. While maintaining a sense of whole, these forms delineate an open gathering zone while enclosing an informal lounge, a workshop area, and an event zone.
