Taking inspiration from the pursuit of a holistic interactive experience between the mind and body, we aim to create an interactive installation that seamlessly blends natural environment with digital technology. The movement of the user will trigger natural elements, resulting in a clever blend of sounds produced from both natural and artificial sources. Using the human body as a medium to establish a connection, blurring the boundaries between the two. How can we incorporate interactive elements into the environmental sounds around our living space and the sounds that we naturally take for granted in nature from an artistic perspective, and how can we integrate our work in different spaces

How does it work?

We use Daisyseed to adjust the strength of the photoresistor and create electronic audio effects. By sensing the distance of light, different sounds are generated. As for natural sounds, we use Touch Board to transmit the sound to the artwork. Different effects can be achieved by touching and sensing different parts.
