The Dissolving Cube is two independent but interrelated works which were commissioned by the Portman Gallery, London in November 2009. Utilising a combination of computer vision and DSP, both of the pieces create an audience interaction via a set of arbitrary objects – sugar cubes – which yields a sonic feedback. The quality of interaction is the central concern of both works with the placement, pattern, grouping, and movement of the cubes having an instant and discernable effect on the sound. Nevertheless, both pieces avoid one to one mappings, instead employing structures of stratified complexity which encourage exploratory and creative interactions. The works are due to be presented again at the Victoria and Albert museum as part of Hide & Seek’s Sandpit in March 2010.
