Aural Skin – Interactive Audiovisual Installation by Alex Halka
“Aural Skin” an interactive Audiovisual Art Installation that represents my journey from sound to image and finally to object (Embroidery & Fluorescent Laser Graffiti).
The installation was produced for kinema ikon “k49 series” and it was displayed in April 2019 for a month at the Art Museum of Arad, Romania.
The installation is made out of three parts:
Interactive Audio Visual realtime generator:
A kinect xbox sensor is used to capture body motion that further operates an 8 voice polyphonic audio synthesizer. Sound and image are created simultaneously.
Initially I developed a prototype of this system, to be used in the theatre. My objective was to create unique choreography, image and music in a visceral, emotional manner.
Embroidery generated by vectorising images of sound or by modulating pictures with raw oscillators.
The Fluorescent Graffiti is created by driving a laser with sound, projecting the light beams on a fluorescent surface. Audio is generated in Pure Data. (the Pure Data patch is developed by Derek Holzer from macumbista.net)
