Anywhere But Here lets you listen to the daydreams of an depressed and underutilized traffic cone.
When you place the traffic cone over your head, you can discover moments of it’s daily life and you might even discover the places of solitude it dreams of finding.
The Self Help box provides useful business and life tips.
Here it is installed on the Stern School of Business building.
The audio tips are sourced from over 10 gigs of self help audio books, processed using this thing I made called Audiogrep which generates audio “supercuts” based on search phrases. The box will play one of the following tracks when the button is pressed.
I’ve got a teddy bear doll whose nose is actually a webcam from junk shop.
With very simple one rule, the doll will have a personality, I hope.
And here’s Max patch that keeps playing randomly chosen sound from playlist while mouse button is pressed:
I’m thinking of just using Processing for the project and no Max patch though.
I’d be magical if I can use ultrasonic directional speaker rather than standard one.
It’ll make very narrow space that you can hear teddy’s singing in instantly catchable way, also making up for the blind spot coming from not-very-wide angle webcam.
The thing is that those speakers are very expensive.
Does anybody have one by any chance?
I found these bookends at an antiques/collectibles store, and was immediately put-off by them. So I chose them for my object for our Audio Readymade assignment.
Initial question: how can I create an interaction with these objects that is non-exploitative and instead addresses the way these types of representations tend to exist unnoticed/unconsidered around us.
Inspired a lot by Maximo’s spatial media project “Virtual Menu”
Just wanna make something similar (use plate as controlling interface) but it is also associated with sound by rotating the plate.
You know you are getting old when you make noises while sitting down, so does a chair. it’s an old chair which makes relaxing sound while you sit on him or been put gently on to the ground.
This is a somewhat masochistic (?) toilet paper roll. Be mean to it (tear chunks out, unroll it entirely, crumple it up…) and it’ll only laugh with glee. Otherwise, it’s just bored and somewhat lonely most of the time.
Concept 1: Encyclopedia that recites Wikipedia entries aloud
- interested in digital reading, book as an obsolete object
- encyclopedia as pre-wiki
- how would you interact with the book? open it? approach it?
- computer voice or human voice?
- estranging people with something that is almost what they expect but something different
