Prototypes : Recreating Sonic Experiences

For this phase I wanted to deeper investigate my interest in acoustics. I started by researching the different sonic phenomenons, categorising and diagraming them, finding a way to represent them, and picking out the ones I could represent on a smaller scale (helmets). The ones I could sensibly represent on such a scale were Sound Reflection and Two different levels of Sound Absorption.

 

I went for a structure that would be big enough for any head to go inside while still being able to line it with thick materials; and for enough space to eventually allow to experience VR while wearing the acoustic helmet.
