Interactive installation, 2013
(Holon Institute of Technology HIT)
ShapeSounds is an interaction which aims to combine two familiar worlds into one: the physical world where each and every object has its own shape, weight and feel to it, together with the world of sound. It takes features of the material world and converts them into sounds that match their character.
The interaction includes a rail on which objects of different shapes are set. When arranging these objects on the rail, moving them back and forth creates consistent strips of sounds. Because of different shapes, weight, and textures, connections are created between the object and the sound it produces.
Doron Segal is an electrical engineer at the Holon Institute of Technology.
