In nature, clams are detectors of pollutants: they serve as tiny filtration systems. Inspired by this natural phenomenon, Italian designer and sound artist Marco Barotti is now presenting his new work Clams, a kinetic sound installation triggered by water quality. 

Real-time data from water of the Vaartkom area in Leuven is streamed by a sensor and converted into an audio signal. The audio signal generates a live evolving soundscape which initiates the opening and closing movements of the clam sculptures. Sound and motion unite to create an experience that allows the audience to see and hear the water quality in real time. 

The Clams sculptures are made from recycled industrial plastic waste. The artwork intends to raise awareness about water and plastic pollution.
