The quiet sound of needles bumping into glass walls and the gentle gurgling of bubbling whirlpools – a storm in a water glass – fill the room. Nelo Akamatsu uses the all-encompassing element of water to translate elementary forces such as magnetism or vortex motions into gentle sounds. Hundreds of water glasses create an atmospheric sound space.
