80Hz 

is an experimental project for exploring the  State Library of New South Wales catalogue through sound. Designed in collaboration with the DX Lab,
80Hz takes paintings from the library’s collection and turns them into music.
 


Digitising data does not necessarily make it more accessible. As information becomes abundant, exploring it becomes increasingly complex. 80Hz builds on concepts of data sonification commonly used in the fields of astronomy and oceanography to understand data. However, 80Hz refocusses data science processes onto artwork in order to explore its visible and invisible data.
