Experience:

Leviathan

“To manage, through strictly physical means, to offer a completely new emotional and philosophical experience… as memory and body take the passage through any given work, something happens, something changes.”
– Anish Kapoor

The Living Room – Sound Reactive TV

I’ve always been fascinated by the flickering light a TV gives off. I am also concerned with my art being experiential – to create a place for visitors to interact with, hang out and make their own. Thus the idea of The Living Room was born.

A TV remote control could be used to control the “channels” on the TV and hence the lighting of the room. The channels were actually various sound reactive applications running off a laptop. The computer was connected to an Arduino with an infra-red sensor to communicated with the remote control.

Featured was also a knitting channel which showed visitors how to knit, with wool and knitting needles provided.

The installation was part of the Mind The Box launch event held at the amazing Mind Pirates building in Kreuzberg Berlin.
