Amplified Floor Riga Performance

A raised wooden structure designed to host live events by Grafcon Construction at the Latvian National Museum of Art has been embedded with microphones to amplify the performative moments that occur while being inhabited.

 

Through the amplification of sounds which normally go unheard or unnoticed, the temporally expressive plywood floor provided the inhabitants with new sensitivities and affected their manner of circulation.

The floor was performed for a live audience and remained amplified for the following day so that visitors to the museum could interact themselves with the sonically-sensitive space.
