This small sculpture was been made as an object of contemplation and is one of a series of works investigating the visualization of invisible phenomenon.
Using CAD a sound file of the Hiroshima atomic bomb (28seconds long) was rotated and transformed into a 3D digital form. The data was then printed in three dimensions using stereolithography.
"28 seconds of Hiroshima is...sound captured, less as a marker in time than a dagger-sharp splinter in the heart of the twentieth century." Max Liu, this is tomorrow, Contemporary Art Magazine
This sound sculpture is the first in a series of sound files transformed into a sculptural form and was made during Jerram's residency at the Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol.
