Whispering Vessels

Inviting interaction and play, each double-layered vessel contains substance like sand or tiny gemstones, which can be seen from the opening, felt and heard, but not emptied. The content is shifted as the vessel is moved, producing sound and creating illusive patterns.

 

The sound in this video was created with the five vessels filmed.
