Makers Fair / Who am I and first toy
The first project I looked at was called speaking in tongues by John Driscoll. It used a piece of silver aluminum foil that spinned. This piece used a small motor to spin the foil. There were two sensors that read the surface of the foil. Each craves the sensor reads would make a different sound. The artist was really nice and wanted to help me in the future with my work.
The second project I was looking at was interesting because it was similar to a project Tiam and I were trying to figure out for Major studio. This project was a small proto-type that the artists plan to implement on the scale of a large room. Although we thought this project used EL wires they simulated an EL wire effect by using fiber optic cable and putting one LED at the top. Then the light from the LED illuminated the rest of the tube.
The last project that caught my eye was the EXP. Ins. X. project. This piece used touch interaction with sound. As you touched the sensors. Images were also produced in reaction to the sound. I’m interested in using sound so this piece fascinated me.
