Music Garden practice

YouTube Preview Image

Music Garden is my first Arduino+ Processing interactive work. At this stage, by triggering the 8 infrared sensors, the flowers on screen will blossom with music correspondingly. At next stage, I would like decorate the infrared sensors as real flowers and spray perfume on them, which would stimulate participants’ olfactory sensation and make the work more multisensory. However, there are still some difficulties at present stage. Firstly, the sensibilities of these infrared sensors are irregular. Secondly, the melodies in flowers cannot work harmonious. I will debug these problems in next stage.
