A camera I checked out from equipment room was stolen under the monitoring of 5 surveillance cameras.
We trade our faces and personal information for security but only get frustrated and exploited. Instead of making us stronger, the system makes us more vulnerable. So I made ADMIN, let the surveillance system speak for itself.
Emotions on line is a wearable instrument that generates sound by pulling strings out of a retractable custom mechanism attached to the performer's body. The inspiration is coming from my experience of learning a instrument that I don't like when I was a child. I played the zither(Chinese traditional instrument)for 10 years, I hate the everyday practice but my parents push me to learn it. Every time when I was playing the zither the teacher was not satisfied with my performance, and always want me to image I was the instrument, the instrument was combine with my body. I was very confuse at that moment, so I build a instrument that the strings could coming out from my body, and I find it is easier to put my emotions on the string.
Using button, laser distance sensors, capacitive sensor, Windloom is a new musical instrument inspired by old interaction of loom and wind box (bellow). The music was controlled by distance, touch and state of the music.
A musical instrument that plays sound and generates visuals projected on fabric. Sensors are attached at the top of the scrolls so that when the fabric is touched with the paintbrush, a sound is played and visuals pop up on the fabric. The system is in MAX/MSP/JITTER with analog input from a serial connection with Arduino. The sounds are composed in Logic and visuals are a combination of a particle system, composited video and p5.js.
