Bau is a labyrinthine space constructed of sound waves. Where the traditional labyrinth uses walls and corners to delineate its passageways, Bau uses sound, thus: the piece occupies a large walled space in which dozens of free-standing sound generators are placed in an asymetrical geometry. These devices emit a variable combination of frequencies such that the entire room may be mapped in different patterns. The room itself is half-lit and filled with a synthetic fog. In low visibility, visitors enter through one door and must listen and decipher the frequency map, making their way through the vastness of the room, in order to find the exit door.
