Fine Collection of Curious Sound Objects [Processing]

The installation includes six exhibits, at first sight looking trivial, each object incorporates a very unique ability. Each is accompanied with a little story, all completely concealing the existence of technical components such as speakers or sensors, only small connection ports as well as the uniform black finishing point to thier unusual abilities. Watch video below for demo.

In form and functionalty all these exhibits pursue John Maeda’s „Simplicity“. They are enjoying to use, they are surprising and one wants to explore and investigate them.

This is a project by Georg Reil and Kathy Scheuring, January 2010 at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt.

Built with Processing and Arduino
