Silver: A Textile Wireframe Interface for the Interactive Sound Installation Idiosynkrasia

Description

Silver is an artwork that deals with the emotional feeling of contact by exaggerating it acoustically. It originates from an interactive room installation, where several textile sculptures merge with sounds. Silver is made from a wire mesh and its surface is reactive to closeness and touch. This material property forms a hybrid of artwork and parametric controller for the real-time sound generation. The textile quality of the fine steel wire-mesh evokes a haptic familiarity inherent to textile materials. This makes it easy for the audience to overcome the initial threshold barrier to get in touch with the artwork in an exhibition situation. Additionally, the interaction is not dependent on visuals. The characteristics of the surface sensor allows a user to play the instrument without actually touching it.
