Transparent Mirrors

Transparent Mirrors

Scuola Di Mercanti, Venice Art Biennale,
Venice, Italy
10 June – 27 July 2003

Composed by Illustrious’ Vince Clarke and Martyn Ware, ‘Transparent Mirrors’ was a three dimensional soundscape installed alongside sculptural work by Philip Tsiaras.

Taking inspiration from both Tsiaras’ sculptures and the sonic beauty of the Venetian streets and squares surrounding the Biennale, Clarke and Ware's composition offered an immersive and contemplative environment in which to reflect upon the space and the visual stimuli within it.

For the installation of ‘Transparent Mirrors’, Illustrious used three dimensional surround sound technology to increase visitors awareness of the movement of sound and the space around them.
