I am currently creating an interactive audio installation based on the distribution of chewing gum splats outside the PR1 Gallery in Preston. The project will be presented as part of The Lancashire Science Festival 28th-30th June 2012.
Sound piece using the x,y coordinates of the distribution of chewing gum splats
Plan view of the space built from individual photographs of the paving slabs. Chewing gum splats marked in pink. The soundpiece takes the horizontal axis as time and the vertical axis are piano keys – highest note at the top. 1bar=1/2 paving slab
I’ve built up a database of x,y coordinates for the gum and am collaborating with Dan Wilkinson to translate these coordinates into sine waves which will be triggered as the audience passes through a grid of infra red sensors.
