Reflective (2014-2016)

Reflective is a series of site-specific sound art installations in which I explore the aesthetic concept of imperfection through interactivity. Affecting the composition through sensors (kinect, ultrasonic sensors and/or piezo microphones) that measure the movements of the body, each visitor creates a unique version of a multi-channel acousmatic composition. Through this interactive process, Reflective offers an intimate-scale reflection on the relationship between decisions, actions and consequences. Each site-specific work is made unique by the sound source materials and hardwares that best accommodates each venue.
