Physical representation of radiation around us

Boom Boom Boom

We, as human beings, are constantly exposed to background radiation from natural sources: soil, rocks and stones. However, with the evolution of man and the development of science, we are now more likely to be exposed to man-made ionising radiation: radio and radar waves, wifi etc.

Boom is a physical representation of radiation around us. It uses a cloud based system that selects a place of interest, measures the level of radiation and is played back through a low frequency bass sound.

The system could select a field in Norway that shows up hardly any radiation and therefore ‘Boom’s’ low frequency will high. If the system selects Chernobyl, the low frequency will be extremely low, allowing the viewer to physically feel the radiation through his / her body.
