Geoffrey Mann : Cross-fire series




“mann’s ‘cross-fire’ series utilizes the possibilities digital technology offers to examine the intangible characteristic of the spoken word. the work investigates the unseen effect of the sound of speech, focusing on an audio excerpt of a domestic argument, sampled from the film ‘american beauty’ (1999).”


“the inensity of the argument’s sound waves are digitally mapped and materialized using rapid prototyping and then the forms are cast in a range of materials. each object encapsulates a momentary emotion of the argument. the once-static tabletop forms are deformed into objects of unseen familiarity. “

‘cross-fire series’ were exhibited as part of lab craft at during london design festival 2010.
