Jonah’s work focuses on subverting existing relationships between human/networked interfaces by building new real-world inputs to networks, redefining how information is used and disseminated, and shifting virtual processes into physical forms through networked devices and experiences. This project attempts to free information from the hidden pathways of wires by using sound as a means of exposing audio/aural
movement in physical space.

Jonah will install a series of speakers in the Medialounge, Reception area and Café Bar at The Media Centre. A microphone in the Medialounge invites people to speak or shout into it. When the microphone picks up a sound, it is transformed and broadcast along the row of speakers in sequence starting from the first speaker in the chain, resulting in a tidal wave of sound.
