Mechanical Interactive Concept "The Acoustic Siren"

  • The final project for an exhibit construction and detailing class at the Corcoran, this is an original design and construction documentation for a mechanical interactive exhibit demonstrating the physics of an acoustic siren. It is designed as a combination conservation-grade exhibit case showcasing the artifact as well as a two person mechanical interactive which invites visitors to apply air pressure to spinning disks and witness the audible and visual effect on a model eardrum.
