Have you ever wondered what the color yellow feels like; the brisk wind tastes like or the sound of your voice looks like?
If it’s the latter, you’re in luck. David Bizer, designer of the Waveform Necklace, takes your personal sound recording and translates it into layered jewelry.
A short sound recording is mapped into a waveform. Circular discs from various materials (from acrylic to silver) are laser cut and strung together to approximate the sound scribbles.

The concept is very similar to Voice Knitter by Trikton that allows you to knit custom wearables from voice patterns.
Both these projects allude to a desire to infuse something very intimate and personal into product design. Interestingly, it is also a means to to sublimate one sensory experience for another. For example, to translate the audible sound of one’s voice into a visual and physical form.
As we begin to collect more and more data about ourselves (intangible facts), there is the innate desire to somehow decode these numbers into meaningful and digestible patterns both visually and formally.
