Workplace to WOrkplace
Tasked with solving the problem of visualizing the unseen, I created Workplace to Workplace by creating a visual system that renders visuals for each of the sounds encountered in my travels from my workplace at school to my workplace at my job's office. I treated this video as an unaltered document that the viewer could use to figure out all the different sounds and environments I encounter.
The project was inspired by my love of podcasts. The stories I'm drawn to are the ones where the producer is able to create a pleasant and interesting experience out of the mundane. I thought it would be interesting to follow my insignificant commute with no direct visuals to go off of but instead the sounds encountered. The sounds I surround myself with provide a chance to find out more about me without speaking directly to me at all.
This project was a significant part of my education that gave me a new understanding of how a strong system can provide an unseen line of communication between the designer and user.
