This project uses a variety of sensors, Max/MSP, Jitter, and an Arduino to create an interactive virtual environment. I like the augmented plants. When the user touches the plants they create different types of musical notes. Another favorite part is the pressure sensitive moss. There is a lot more information and pictures on the website.
The project explores the integration of biological and technological systems in the development of an interactive human interface. This notion is investigated through the design and construction of an interactive installation where user interactions with hybrid systems affect the light and sound-scape of the installation space. The design is suggestive of an information rich, technologically augmented landscape. Kinesthetic user/landscape relationships are forged within a mediated spatiality of light and sound.
