INSTALLATION

Sound Installation, 2011, co-created with Miriam Simun
Passive Infrared and Sonic Range Finder Sensors, Arduino, Max/MSP, 8-Channel Original Audio Content

21% invites visitors to influence a sound collage in collaboration ‘with’ the trees they walk amongst, as well as with other visitors to the space.
The installation took place on October 16, 2011 at the Switched-On Garden in Bartram’s Gardens, Philadelphia, PA.

Y-ROD
Collage, 2011

A comic collage based on the original story/screenplay Y-Rod.
Panels are constructed using the golden ratio.
Installation features proximity sensors that trigger the sounds of radio broadcasts.

 

CADENCE CHAIR
Interactive Installation, 2010
Wooden rocking chair, arduino, FSR sensors, interactive animation, projection
A synesthetic experience whereby the user cannot discern exactly which of their senses is perceiving
any particular stimuli. Only steady rocking descrambles sound and images to reveal a cinematic narrative.
A balance between stasis and motion is constantly being challenged until the user lets go of their concentration. [more]
Upon first sitting down, the user sees ribbons/blades of light that move with the rhythm of the chair.
A series of still video frames are cycled through the background when one of the buttons is pressed with
too little or too much force. The right amount of force maintains a steady image and decreases the level
of visual cacophony.
 All three sensors have tangible control over both the image and sound, however this
control is never so direct that one sensor clearly controls only one aspect of the sketch.
Through experimentation the user must determine an appropriate “choreography” of sensory input.
Serene, steady rocking combined with relaxed pressure on the buttons will ultimately distract the user from
being aware of their immediate surroundings. In turn this will descramble the image to reveal the film/music
and facilitate the synesthetic experience.

 

MOSSITAR
Interactive Installation, 2010
Moss, wood, glass, arduino
Living moss is embedded with electronics that complete a circuit when touched by human hands,
producing the sound of a sitar and tambura.
