Loop.pH ‘Osmo’

Osmo is an infinity membrane that envelops viewers and invites them to bathe beneath the stars while listening to an ambient soundscape with live sounds from outer space. Visitors are invited to step into a monumental silver sphere made from reflective silver mylar – a NASA space material - with a projected universe held within its interior. A map of the cosmos is etched into the membrane charting all the 9000 stars visible to the naked eye.

Loop.pH is a London based spatial laboratory experimenting across the fields of design, architecture and the sciences. The studio was founded in 2003 by Mathias Gmachl and Rachel Wingfield to form a new creative practice that reaches beyond specialist boundaries. In 2014, Rachel Wingfield was named an inaugural Wired Innovation Fellow.

Ototo Playable Room’

Step into the Ototo Playable Room installation where you can turn touch into sound and light. A collaboration between onedotzero and artist Yuri Suzuki, the Ototo installation uses the Ototo circuit board to create a tactile musical adventure where you are the conductor and your instruments are balloons, vegetables and unconventional objects.

Ototo is a musical invention kit developed by Yuri Suzuki, a sound artist, designer and electronic musician who produces work that explores the realms of sound through exquisitely designed pieces. He is a lecturer at the Royal College of Art and recipient of the prestigious Designer of the Future Award : Design Miami/Swarovski 2016. In 2014 Ototo was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
