Speaker for the Deaf



Sculptures made for a project that won the Design Competition “Give a Voice to the North Sea” in the context of the awarding of the Spinozalens to French philosopher and sociologist Bruno Latour.

The ceramic sculptures are based on the hearing systems of different underwater species. A soundscape of noise that occurs in the North Sea is fed to each sculpture. When the soundscape plays, one can hear it, feel it (by biting on the sculpture) or see its vibration in a liquid stored in the sculpture. This way, the project tries to expand the ways in which creatures experience noise in the sea.
