Can you guess what it is yet?

My processing sketch is starting to resemble what I had envisioned in my minds eye. Sensors are all working and communicating with processing, which is awesome. Going to be exhibiting in the partition of space 4 and 5, so I’ve booked it out this evening and tomorrow morning, so hopefully I can identify any logistical problems with the space and iron them out in time for Render.

Osmosis, finally the video documentation

Finally the video documentation for the installation I made with Ewelina Aleksandrowicz and Andrzej Wojtas is online. Thanks to Bernhard Garnicnig and Culture Lab onSite for the support.

Osmosis, on Culture Lab OnSite Vimeo Channel


A site-specific installation by Ewelina Aleksandrowicz, Alessandro Altavilla, Andrzej Wojtas.


Osmosis is a response to the physical and infrastructural characteristics of 5 Forth Street in Newcastle Upon Tyne, a space carved from one of the main railways bridges of the city.

Osmosis investigates the surfaces of the Culture Lab On Site space as a vehicle for acoustic information, sensed from the outside.
It works as the passage of material from a space with a substantial concentration of sound and events to a dispersed outside.
Osmosis uses the space as a big container of resonance, generated by an horizontal array of 11 piezo speakers placed on the wall, an audio feedback system (2 active speakers, 1 sub, 1 large diaphragm microphone) and 10 window transducers.
The visitors interact with the installation from outside the space, by listening to barely audible sounds and are invited to touch the glass in order to experience tactile sounds emitted by window transducers.
