The project downloads images depending on search words, resamples the images line by line and, at the same time, generates notes out of the image color information. By moving hands above or on the sphere, the audio samplers are turned on or off making it possible to hear the sounds mixing together from different parts of the image.
One of the main concepts concerning the installation is the use of virtual “found” imagery in a realtime physical installation, regenerating low resolution images one line, one note and one color at a time.
The other idea is the creation of sounds out of images, using basic data – color, to create note pitches – the lighter the pixel, the higher the note. Therefore, the project circles around the user, giving the possibilty to interact with the installation not only through body movement but also through meanings of words. The way the projection looks and the audio sounds depends solely on the symbols the search words represent.
