Some of my favorite works were ones where either you interact with the work or it has some type of auditory sounds. This exhibit in the Polish Pavilion contained 2 bells that rang on the hour every hour.  The position of the bells, and the amplification through the speakers make this exhibit easily heard from all around the Giardini.  This is a great example of architectural amplification, and I find this piece very interesting.  The bells were handmade by the artist, Konrad Smolenski, and is defined as a sound sculpture.  I find the idea of a sound sculpture very interesting, and may want to pursue something relating to sound in my future works, especially in regards to the installation pieces.
