Awareness of the sound

Itsuko Hasegawa

Tokyo is full of echoes and various sounds, causing people to lose their sensitivity to sound itself.
The project will make 3 sound absorbing spaces within galleries in Tokyo.
Through experiencing spaces full of different kinds of silence, people will begin to notice sound.
