Saying Meara O’Reilly is a sound artist is not just a fancy way of saying she’s a musician — Meara creates visual art from sound and builds her own instruments, as well as sings and writes music. She’s also an educator in residence at the Exploratorium, sharing her passion for auditory perception. Meara recently collaborated with design firm Snibbe Interactive to create sound-based cymatic concert visuals for Björk’s Biophilia world tour, and is finishing her first permanent exhibit at the Exploratorium based on related work. In addition, she’s been a guest blogger on Boing Boing, as well as shared many a tool and book review on the pages of MAKE, and taught us how to wind our own guitar pickups using a sewing machine in MAKE Volume 22.
