Sesamo -

Sesamo explores the power and potential of the human voice which is as unique as the fingerprint. From recordings of the collector’s voice, the resulting sound waves are transformed into a sculpture which can be suspended like a mobile or fixed on a structure. Voice is given physical form. As the hollow tubes are caught in the wind, the work responds, producing its own melody. In this example, it is the voice of the owner alone who can unlock the gates to reveal the rich collection within.
