Citywide, street-facing touchscreen and speakers interfaces. Created in response to Jaygo Bloom’s original concept.FutureSonic Festival, Manchester, July 2006. Also exhibited at The Edge Gallery, Lancaster (October 2006).
The work translates an online keystroke into an actual real time, physical announcement. Online users control events in the streets and festival venues, triggering screens and the quick shot, rapid-fire, 8bit sounds emanating out of location based sound modules located throughout the Futuresonic 2006 venues.
As technology becomes more pervasive, it fades into the background of human activities, becoming far less visible than is the case today. By attaching a physical connection to things we perceive as virtual, we can begin to make the intangible tangible.
