This project was done together with Martin Hesselmeier (http://www.martinhesselmeier.com)
The installation „capacitive body“ reacts to the sound of its environment. Each custom built module consists of a high bright electroluminescent wire, a piezoelectric sensor and a microcontroller. For a first setup at the Tschumi Pavilion (Groningen, NL) a sensor was attached on each side of the pavilion‘s glass shell, whose vibrations are triggered by the ambient noise of its surroundings. The sensor data is transformed into the light behaviour of each wire. A dynamic light space is thereby created, which gives visual feedback of the aural activity around the installation.
