MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
"The direction of gravitational pull changes according to the hand movement of the audience. The signal that is sent from Kinect according to the hand movement, is received by the servo motor and link arm, which translates the signal to mechanical movements to control the angle of the tank and camera in real time. By syncing the position of the hand and the gravitational force, the audience will reminisce of the Jedi’s from Star Wars. But that experience is not direct or shocking, but completely emotional. Most of the people might just end with being slightly amused, but some might end up thinking deeply about "the force”. This is what I ultimately try to address with my work. I believe change can start with a simple experience like this."

NON HUMAN DEVICE #02
Second part of a series of installations based on alien objects/devices found by Boris Chimp 504 during his missions through the deep space).
In every version it is presented a new interface and the audience is invited to explore and interact with sound and visuals in real time.
Nice article by “The Creators Project”, about the Non Human Device series and the Boris Chimp 504. By Rodrigo Carvalho/Visiophone - Visuals and interactive system, Miguel Neto - Sound.
"Tangible audio interface to manipulate and visualize sounds generated from interaction with a simple wooden surface.
Any physical contact with the table generates acoustic vibrations which are manipulated and visualized LIVE as they occur using several communicating pieces of software.”
By Felix Faire. Making Of here.
"Murmur is an architectural prosthesis that enables the communication between public and the wall upon which it is connected. The installation simulates the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual worlds."

"Noisy jelly is a game where the player has to cook and shape his own musical material, based on coloured jelly.
With this noisy chemistry lab, the gamer will create his own jelly with water and a few grams of agar agar powder. After added different color, the mix is then pour in the molds. 10 min later, the jelly shape can then be placed on the game board,and by touching the shape, the gamer will activate different sounds.”
