face helmet that is sensitized to react to movements of facial muscle and skin to transmit optical and acoustical signals. Plug it into a window; that couple across the street will know whether you're crying or laughing, so let a smile be your umbrella!

SOUND CHAIR (by Plummer Fernandez*) is a...
a sound that is precisely crafted to form the physical shape of a normal chair when visualized as a 3-dimensional object using a volume, time, frequency line plot. the life-size chair is an exact replica of the soundwave graph so that the result is a product with dual existence as both a "sound" & a "chair".
The sound chair is a visualization of something you usually can't see.
