Echo I- Sand (2015)
I have seen a lot of visual works that are made by purely digital form, such as videos and installations. However, there are maybe some interesting aspects about using actual objects when we are doing sound and visual performance. Therefore, it's exciting to create a real time interactive installation which focus on the physical actual objects on the stage. I try making series installations to bridge the power of actual objects with music. The final goal is to combine the variable musicality and these installation.
The whole project basically work with the vibration of speakers, but I apply this into different setting. Regarding the combination of music and visual effects, I make this idea into three installations.
The installation aim at the materials movement by triggering with sound on a speaker, it shows the interaction between sound and actual objects. The appearance of the installation is a closed wooden box, there are one transducer, one metal plate with objects on it and a webcam with a magnifier in front of its lens inside this box. The reaction and vibration of the objects on the plate is projected on the screen through the webcam. This installation focus on picking up the different reactions of dynamics and timbre.
