Visual Noise Contest is a light installation developed as a final project for the 'World of Night', a class from the Media Arts and Sciences program at the MIT Media Lab taught by Susanne Seitinger and Anne Beamish.
The piece consists of an array of led lights - model iColor Flex, generously donated by Philips Color Kinetics - that visualize the input of two microphones, one on each end. By making noise on the microphones the contesters' objective is to turn all the lights to their color. When they do so, there is a little light celebration :)
This project is part of a series of experiments developed at the MIT Media Lab towards the celebration of the MIT 150th anniversary spring 2011.
