Bompas & Parr have created an art installation that will make your eyeballs vibrate

Culinary creatives Bompas & Parr have brought us a walk-in cocktail cloud, a Roald Dahl-themed dinner party and the world's longest tasting menu. But now they're switching things up with a feast for the eyes, with the launch of a sound-based installation, which will 'appear to connect you with the supernatural'. Spooky.

As part of Merge Festival, Bompas & Parr have teamed up with acoustic scientists to create 'Voice of God', which will transpose recorded voices into infrasound. The sounds will be broadcast at 19Hz, which is below the regular human hearing threshold, but is the resonant frequency of the human eyeball, which means the installation will cause your eyeballs to vibrate. Yes, really.

If you want your voice to be 'heard' through people's eyeballs (and who doesn't?), email by September 3 and submit your voice message. 

Voice of God is at Hilton London Bankside, 2-8 Great Suffolk St, SE1 0UG. September 29–October 2. Free entry. No booking.
