She took a break in London to come to Berlin and join the School of Machines, Making and Make Believe.
There she developed a project called Wind Radio. It’s a public installation based on a wind sock. It plays radio stations depending on where the wind is blowing from, and how strong it is.
Part of the installation was 3D printed. She shows making-of photos and videos.
Presented the Televangelist last time. Satirical piece. He’s presenting today the sonification aspect he added to the work. The sound includes voices from old televangelist recordings manipulated using tone.js.
Then he shows various experiments on pixel manipulation which ended up as part of an interactive installation which is controlled via an interface built into a physical book. The book contains an arduino, a power bank, a wifi chip and a light bulb.
