Sound for a Mindful Space

 

We offered this immersive sound installation at Lift Next Level Floats, a sensory deprivation/flotation therapy center in Brooklyn. A two-piece sound sculpture set in the lounge space of the center creates slow, meditative soundscapes.

Our goal was to integrate sound with the space to create an area for calmness, mental clarity and respite. Visitors to the center experienced this as a decompression both before and after their flotation experience.

Sensory deprivation can be deeply introspective; this mindful soundspace offers a safe post-float area for visitors to reflect and mentally acclimate before returning to the high-energy lifestyle of New York City.
