This is an interactive installation in which one can control light and sound by moving one's hand within a certain space.
The interface exists within a three-dimensional
space and enables the participant to operate the devices without using
one's hands; freely and unhampered. Furthermore, the objects to be operated
are spread out in a three-dimensional space and provides the participant
with a new experience, namely to operate a mechanized device in a separate
place. The activated sound is not made by a computer but the sound of
a copper pipe hit by a motor accompanied by a flashing light, and will
be a refreshing change to the ears of people accustomed to hearing computerized
or digitalized sound.Computers and digitalized equipment is used to
detect hand movement and activate the light and sound, but is not seen
by the participant. The theme of this object is the physical movement
of the participant's hand and the simple but meaningful sound of the
copper pipe, and the light. This expresses and symbolizes my personal
philosophy that computers andother high-tech equipment, as it supports
our daily lives, should not have a strong visual presence.
