Cooper Hewitt Installations included two exhibitions that explored the role of sound in design. Trash Bot, the first installation, was showcased in the exhibit Hear, See, Play: Designing with Sound at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in 2018 and was created in partnership with the visual design studio Marcos Key.

THE CONCEPT

Visitors get to play sound designer for the street-cleaning machine, Trash Bot. Users select a melody, an ambience, and a special effect to communicate four actions and express the machine’s personality. The goal is to teach the importance of sound as a design medium to communicate both functional and emotional information.




 

Symphony of Healthcare is an interactive exhibit that proposes a new system of alarms in hospitals to alleviate patient distress and physician desensitization. The sonic installation highlights the importance of sound as a design element in improving the intuitiveness, environmental health and safety of patients. The installation was showcased in the exhibit The Senses: Design Beyond Vision at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in 2018.
