ACOUSTIC ORNAMENT Book launch party and talk by Zackery Belanger

Join us for this event at The Design Museum of Chicago, March 3 at 5:30-7pm
72 E Randolph St Chicago, IL 60601 (Expo 72 Building)

This lecture version of Zackery Belanger‘s essay Acoustic Ornament connects the objects and surfaces that surround us with the sound of our built environment. Gleaning insight from art, architecture, physics, and a time before modern architectural acoustics, Belanger demystifies ideas of material, form, and scale in acoustics. Beautiful, silent moving images of acoustic energy will be projected to illustrate ideas that ultimately coalesce around a central concept – the Sphericity Conjecture – which offers a potential new way to design for sound.
Presented by the Design Museum of Chicago, this event will take place during the All Together Now sound x design exhibition currently on display.
