In this interview filmed at Dezeen Space, designers LingJing Yin, Mark McKeague and Ting Chung Jessica Cheng demonstrate how they created a soundscape at Dezeen Platform by channeling the electrical charge in people's bodies, then amplified the sound by asking visitors to link hands.
A sensor in the base sends signals to a speaker playing a combination of tracks. When people link hands (0r any other body part for that matter) the signal intensifies, increasing the volume, length and layers of sound.
The presentation is an adaptation of LingJing Yin's Touch*Play project, presented at Show RCA this summer and developed in collaboration with fellow Royal College of Art student Mark McKeague.
They previously developed toys to help autistic children explore and a mat that uses the same technology for dance performances
LingJing Yin worked with designer Ting Chung Jessica Cheng to design the sound for this adaptation at Dezeen Platform..
