[Design] Handphone Table!
Since Pasta and Vinegar is in a raging war with regine, I have to use a wild card: a 25 years old table which is still impressice: The Handphone Table made by Laurie Anderson in 1978. It is now part of the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Lyon, France.
When the listeners put their elbows on the table and cover their ears with hands, they can hear the sounds coming through wood and bones of their own arms which, similarly to wood, have a porous structure.The principle of the performance of Handphone Table bases on the conduction of sound through bones. Stereophonic music in low ranges is strengthened and processed to the form of impulses, spread through metal bars connecting with four points on the inner surface of the table top.
