'Murmur' is a piece of sound installation art created by a group of designers from Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank. Visitors to the "eco room" can speak into a device that transforms sounds into LED-projected visuals onto a wall using tehchnology like 'Raspberry Pi' and 'openFrameworks.'

The experience mimics the transmission of sound waves through space, having them dramatically "hit" the wall in a display of lights. Depending on the sounds it detects, 'Murmur' will show different visuals like circles, dots and spiderwebs. This installation is one that bridges the gap between the sensory and visual experience of sound, creating the opportunity for people to share their thoughts and see them simultaneously projected onto a physical space.
