August 2014 /// The Dancing Ceiling
Ceilings are arguably the least adorned surface in contemporary buildings. Humans’ tendency toward viewing space laterally means that ceilings are usually utilitarian white planes of sheetrock, plaster, or acoustic tile. Other than the occasional light fixture, vent, or structural member, ceilings are essentially static surfaces. What if sound could activate ceilings by dynamically affecting form, texture, and/or color? How might a ceiling react differently to footsteps, conversations, or music? What happens when a ceiling starts to dance?
Participants are asked to design a surface that has an inactive state of a flat white surface that is activated by different sounds. Submissions may be technical, conceptual, practical, and/or artistic
