For my project I will be doing it with light and color. My project will be a soft ball, small pillow, or anything soft and small. The pillow or soft ball will change color accordingly to the pressure that it is given. The pillow will be sensitive and will react accordingly to the pressure given to it. For an example, if I was to grip the pillow very hard, then the pillow will glow a violent red. If the pillow is to be handle carfully and sofly, then it will shine in a calm blue. The colors will vary from blue to red.
I've been working with a local painter (Neil Johnston) on a collaborative video installation piece in downtown Minneapolis. The projection scheme we have been using failed late last week, so we've moved the videos to YouTube until we can find a fix. This is a Max/MSP/Jitter installation that connects the artist to the gallery space and provides realtime sonic feedback to the artist's brushstrokes based on color and placement on the canvas. The hope is that Neil will explore his musicianship through his brushstrokes.
