Infrasonic Hug is a sound sculpture where a pair of subwoofers face each other – a symbolic hug – while absorbing low frequencies. Adorno’s hug make visible a phantom acoustic wave that the human ear can not hear, but can feel.
This piece is being shown as part the first all female media arts exhibit Silent Reflections.
