  • Like it…

  • Wow. Try hitting play on all three of the videos, turning up the volume on your computer and zoning out. Sounds like a rainstorm. :)

  • I played all three videos at the same time.
    It sounded like a rainstorm.

  • hahah i love that you two both did the exact same thing without knowing the other one had

    i too have experienced the rainstorm

  • staring at just the filler wire in the third video gives the impression that a circle has been formed out of the dc-motors. the rainstorm is incredible!

  • I hear the rainstorm, too! Love it.

    This is really cool :)

  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this before, very cool idea though. I’ve been to galleries and heard strange sounds mixed with footage on large projectors but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a ‘sound sculpture’ before. I bet it’s even better to be in the room at the same time.

  • very interesting to look at and hear – love this original concept

  • I saw/heard this installation a few months ago at the Vooruit in Ghent, Belgium, it was part of an exhibition there. I really loved it, the sound was really overwhelming, and yet the idea is so simple. it put a smile on my face :)

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
