Sound, vibration, and the sense of touch were foregrounded in the installation of Shapes Eat Shapes. Four "sound screens" made of plexiglass, wooden frames and speakers presented the soundtrack in a tactile manner as visitors were encourages to touch the screens and feel the vibrations of the varying frequencies. The image track, projected large on two adjacent walls also provoked an immersive experience, contributing to the overall blurring of boundaries between interior and exterior space and rhythm.
