Disciplines Digital, Jewellery, Products

Released 2009

8Hertz is jewellery formed from phrases of intimate communication. It is said that only seven percent of all communication is verbal. Words exchanged between lovers and friends carry significance far beyond their diction.

With 8hertz a recording is made of an individual's voice, sampling every nuance, subtlety and accent. This high-definition representation is then translated via a generative algorithm into a three-dimensional form. Each form is individual and unique to the person who created it. The piece is then realised in either white rapid prototyped photopolymer or precious metal (silver, gold, white gold or platinum) in order to capture the moment in a timeless, durable icon representing the unique nature of human interaction.

The necklace pictured below was created from the French actress Jeanne Moreau's quote: "Age does not protect you from love, but love, to some extent, protects you from age."
