Short summary
Hertz is an art–science installation allowing the public to experience the hidden vibrations of our planet through infrasound. Infrasound is sound below the human range of hearing produced by geological and atmospheric motion. Real-time recordings of infrasound were played through adapted furniture, which shook to allow the Earth’s inaudible symphony to be experienced. Hertz was exhibited to 7000 participants, of which 85 % felt reconnected to the environment after participating.
