Lazy Arms is a piece meant to interact with the viewer. Instead of building it inside the virtual world, we opted for a real analog version based on the same technology as other pieces. It is not a musical instrument, but an experiment and a response to overcome the boundaries between humans and technology through creative means.
Lazy Arms combines robotics, machine learning, and real-time control of light and sound to build an emotional space which allows the viewer to lead his/her own orchestra of undulating arms, changing sounds, and vibrant colors.
From your position in front of the piece, you become a conductor, controlling the orchestra of lights, movements and sounds. As you move your arms, the arms of the piece sway along with you, changing colors and emitting sounds based on your movements.
