Peak Frequency
digital billboards
1540 x 370 cm (horizontal wrap spectrogram)
330 x 1240 cm (vertical podium key)

Digital billboard visualisation of site-specific sonic patterns, displayed on the corner of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street for the Fivex Art Prize, Melbourne, December 2020 - January 2021.


Peak Frequency is a hypnotic representation of our urban space, reflecting and distributing what is already there in pursuit of encouraging critical awareness of the systematic and routine foundations of our public lives. The work is a spectrogram, time is represented on the x-axis, sonic frequency on the y-axis, and decibel intensity is colour.
