Flow – Waves of real time data


In Flow, sound and visual artist maotik creates an immersive installation which places the spectator in front of an impressive and soothing visual wave form, constantly modified and altered by realtime weather data.Using 11 various parameters such as sea levels, time of the day, moon cycles and wind force the colour and the shape of the wave form is altered.

TouchDesigner is a visual development platform and this was used to develop this immersive interactive installation.

Research Method: Walking


Walking as a research method is an interesting concept but not one I had considered before. How many times per day would you say you pay attention to the sounds and noises around you? Once? Twice?

Interesting though to realise how exploring places with sound walking can show you how much you miss out when you’re not paying attention. On the other hand it can be difficult in a bustling city to hear the voice of an opera singer or the birds chirping in the trees nearby.
