Confessions

Confessions (2012) is a study in public catharsis. Participants were asked to record and upload confessions through a website. Each confession was then played through a speaker on repeat for the duration of the show. Viewers could walk up to each speaker and listen to an individual confession. Shown as part of the 2012 BA/BFA graduation exhibition at UBC.

Study for an Ethereal Delight

Study for an Ethereal Delight (2012) was an interactive multimedia installation hung in the atrium of the ICICS Building at UBC. Three LED matrices were constructed out of plastic rods, wood, and zinc tubing, and controlled by an Arduino-Processing-MAX/MSP interface. As viewers travelled underneath each matrix, they would scatter “birds” represented by the LEDs. This was the second of two installations developed as part of the AVAST project. The first can be seen here.

Interference

Interference (2012) was developed to subtly interfere with the daily routines of passers-by in the Laserre Building at UBC. Using the audio processing technologies of MAX/MSP, a single sound was broken up into 16 constituent parts, each assigned to a single speaker. Similarly, the light spectrum was broken up into 16 constituent parts, each assigned to a X-position on a wall. As a viewer passed by either side of the installation, the sound or light piece corresponding to their position would engage. If two viewers passed by at the same time, the opposite light or sound would be modulated, thereby making it impossible to enjoy the full effects of the piece without coordinating with another viewer. This was the first installation of the Arts Visual Audio Sensing Technologies (AVAST) project. I was one of four musicians and artists who designed, developed and built an interactive multimedia installation for the Laserre Building at UBC. Our other project can be seen here.
