md sonic Sonic Body
If you don’t already know, I love the Arduino, and Sonic Body has a great interactive sculpture made with one of these cool little microcontrollers.

The Sonic Body is an audio-installation that uses interactive technology to create an orchestra of the human body. Developed as collaboration between four interdisciplinary artists and a heart surgeon, the installation brings together art and medical-science to reveal the unheard sounds of the body.

The video is interesting, but I am sure it is no substitute for entering the environment and seeing it in person. Unfortunately, according to the web site, it was on view at the Blank Gallery through November 2007. Let’s hope it makes a trip to the US in the future. – Link [Via]
