“Mogees” by Bruno Zamborlin, et al. (2012)

This fourth precedent is being posted because Ishin-den-shin was already used and I wanted to be sure to have three new ones. This technology can turn anything into an instrument by picking up on the way that the object being used as an instrument is being touched. Like Ishin-den-shin, this project has something seemingly low-tech do something unexpected and truly immerses the user in the experience by having them be directly involved.

“Making the walls quake as if they were dilating with the secret knowledge of great powers” by Katarzyna Krakowiak (2012)

Artists,Instrument,Reference — chentsch @ 4:41 pm

“Krakowiak transforms the pavilion space into a vibrating structure of sound that picks up on the noise generated by neighbouring pavilions (Egypt, Serbia, Venice, Romania) via microphones installed in the floors and ventilation, heating and sewage systems. Visitors can “eavesdrop” on all the different sounds emitted from these other pavilions as evidence of the typical workings of the building and human activity, heightened by the effects of speaker systems, mixers and amplifiers. The intimacy of personal space is broken down by making all types of sounds available to a larger public, no matter how unpleasant, uncomfortable or plain embarrassing.”
