聽得出的美麗 Seeing beauty with your ears

May 7, 2011

三歲花女在世紀婚禮上掩耳,一臉不悅的照片令她瞬間全球知名。也難怪她啊,軍機表演的噪音的確吵耳。

我們往往在噪吵時才發現耳朵的存在,寧靜時又可有用耳感受美麗的生活?

倫敦產品設計師 Christina Biliouri 就發明了一系列高低不同水杯,杯身連接的管子和玻璃球就如共鳴箱一樣。
喝水時杯身傾斜,水位不同,譜奏出千變萬化的樂音。

視障人士即使看不到水,也可聽到水流動的聲音。
健視的人也體會到用耳去留意身邊的美麗。

Three-year old bridesmaid Grace van Cutsem stole the scene when she showed her displease at the royal wedding.  Perhaps the sound from the massive crowds and the spectacular Royal Air Force flyover was a bit too much.  Very often we notice the existence of our ears in noisy environment.  Have we ever felt the beauty of small things with ears?

A London-based product designer Christina Biliouri came up with an experiment using glasses of different heights.  The nicely-designed volumetric tubes and bubbles of different volumes function like sound boxes.  When we drink and tilt the glass, we hear beautiful aural effect and playfully interact with the water.

With this collection of drinking glass, visually-impaired people feel the flowing water, others learn to hear the beauty around us.
