Marin Residency

19 June 2011

The last 10 days, I spend on an island in the Naantali region. This was part of the MARIN residency program “Sensing the Baltic Sea”. During this beautiful and inspiring stay, I worked on Anemos Sonore, a piece that looks at a hypothetical place where sound is the primary medium to convey information. In such a world not only the displays’ design would’ve been taken a different way, but also the very basic sensory elements themself since it is of no use to first turn a signal into values (frequency, phase, amplitude, etc.), in order to convert those again into a signal needed to monitor them auditorily. To investigate this further, I devised two different scenarios, both incorporating the sensing of wind.

I wrote about my observations and insights on this page. There is also an official blog of the camp.
