Plasticity by Jane Grant, John Matthias, Nick Ryan, Kin Design
The creators of the PRS Award winning Fragmented Orchestra project in collaboration with design studio Kin present their latest collaboration, Plasticity, a site-specific project that invites users to interact with an audio-visual installation. An array of speakers, microphones and led lights are arranged as the network comes alive in direct response to visitor inputs, stimulatedâ€¨by the sounds within the environment.
The installation consists of an array of microphones distributed and a network of speakers, arranged across a wall. The network comes alive in direct response to visitor input into the microphones and is in effect stimulated by the sounds within the environment. Plasticity develops over time with previously unheard patterns and connections emerging as the installation evolves, creating a unique sonic and visual experience.
Audio/DSP developer was Tim Hodgson and support from technologist John Nussey. Plasticity was premiered at onedotzero_adventures in motion at the BFI Southbank, London in 2011, sponsored and supported by Bowers & Wilkins, the University of Plymouth and the Arts Council.
