ATHsENSe: A multisensory outdoor installation
MetadataShow full item record
The ATHsENSe installation is a four part AV installation based on environmental data from the city of Athens. It comprises four different installations: a visualization projection of the data, a sound installation where the data are being sonified, an installation comprising eight LED displays projecting texts from users of the web app of ATHsENSe, and a light installation reflecting the sound levels of a central point of Athens. The second of the four installations is presented here where data concerning CO, CO2, humidity and others, together with texts provided by the web app users, are being sonified in a six-channel surround installation. In addition to the electronic sounds of the sonification, four kinetic sculptures are being triggered by the system which create acoustic sounds by hitting found objects. This installation is located at the Serafeio complex in Athens, and was commissioned to the Spatial Research Media Group by the municipality of Athens after their successful participation in the Interventions in the City competition.
