Toronto Sound Prints

(in collaboration with Ryerson University’s SMART Lab)

Toronto Sound Prints translates the psychological effects of urban soundscapes to visual imagery. Maps and images were created based on data from Ryerson University’s SMART Lab. These findings, specifically related to stress, are encoded as alterations of photographs of the recording site. This provides a representation of the emotional, subjective and internal responses to a location’s unique sound.
