The work of Will Schrimshaw is based on interaction with the environment through sound. This concern is materialised through the use of specifically built devices that, as interactive tools, generate situations in which visitors and/or passers-by become sound generators. His work uses the role of sound as a catalyst for movement and a material for the construction of active spaces.
Little Helpers draw special attention to the resonating properties of matter. They act as vibrational prostheses, extending and enhancing the material force in sound and its impact on the environment. These devices occupy architectural spaces in order to demonstrate the sound qualities of the elements that constitute them, which usually go unheard.
