    Urban Armor is an artwork consisting of a series of playful electronic wearables for women which investigate the ways women experience public space. These devices are, for the most part, not actually viable solutions for societal problems. However, they do provoke conversations, not only about social issues, but about the future of technology in our everyday lives. www.urbanarmor.org Copyright Kathleen McDermott 2014 **this is not a product, it is an artwork, please contact me directly if you would like to feature this video on your blog or news site.**

      A floating orb that explores and manipulates transitional public spaces with particular acoustic properties. By recording and replaying these ambient sounds, the hovering sphere produces a delayed echo of human activity. Electronics were programmed and inserted into the sphere in order to record and replay the surrounding sounds.

      • Pneumatic Sponge Ball Accelerator - An installation at Tschumi Pavilion, Groningen

        The "Pneumatic Sponge Ball Accelerator" is installed at the Tschumi Pavilion in Groningen / The Netherlands. The apparatus contains 1000 black sponge balls, which are sucked through 150m of transparent pneumatic tubes with the power of a normal household vacuum cleaner. Visitors can operate the machine with a touch sensor: They can change the direction of the airflow and watch the balls speed up, slow down and turn around. The balls reach a top speed of about 4m/s. You can read more about the project on my website: http://www.niklasroy.com/project/174/PSBA I also sucked a little spy camera through the pipes and recorded the result. You can find that video here: https://vimeo.com/99514565 And here's the original music, produced by Kava Kon: https://soundcloud.com/nelstruesdell/kava-kon-zombie

                      Here is documentation of the street exhibition we did for Transmediale 2010 as part of the Future Obscura exhibition. It was the first successful trial of The Artvertiser digital binoculars (aka 'Billboard Interception Unit' v1). We had a huge number of advert substitutions submitted to us for the exhibition; just a few are documented here. Around 30 people joined us on the art walk and many thousand people saw this documentation in the exhibition hall itself. Thanks to all the artists that contributed work! http://theartvertiser.com
