'Murmur' Shows Room Noise On The Walls

Make sure you don't mutter to yourself at Murmur, because your petty grievances will end up visualized on the wall. The project uses Raspberry Pi and openFrameworks to visualise and project LED simulations of the sound waves in a room.

The designers, a collaborative team from Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank, call the piece an "architectural prosthesis," because it acts as a link between people in a room and the walls surrounding them. The visualizations evolve and change depending on the types of sounds the Murmur instrument is picking up. It could be kind of liberating to see your deepest secrets playing on the walls.
