Adorno’s work resides at the intersection of art, technology, and the physics of sound. During her month-long residency at Clemente, Adorno created a sound sculpture based on the concept of hydrophonic background noise–underwater noise of anthropogenic origins. She also experimented with the physical structure of the studio space through an ongoing series titled Spaces Speak in which she amplifies sounds generated by the vibrations of the walls and windows of the spaces she works in. This iteration of the piece is called: Spaces Speak: 406 Clemente.
