Chatty spring ballz + Piana obscura – Cere Davis

Chatty Spring Ballz is an acoustic-kinetic sculpture that creates sound in response to subtle changes in the environment. Piana Obscura gives an alternate voice to the piano by using an inductive pickup in “reverse”. 

Cere Davis is a disciplinary artist and engineer based in Berkeley, Ca. Her background includes work and studies in computer systems architecture, physics and vocal improvisation. Her work freely crosses boundaries between playful laboratory experimentation and acousto-kinetic studies. Her current creations focus on interactive educational sculptures that viscerally demonstrate many subtle principles of Physics through sonic means. Her works encourage the observer to explore their pre-conceptions of sound and movement.
