Soundscape

Soundscape is a sound installation based on motion detection technology. As users move around in the empty space of the installation, that is being monitored by a kinect sensor, they activate "hot areas" resulting to sound stimulus of varying intensity. These sound signals correspond to a natural environment that is not visible but becomes only perceived through audition.
The installation also includes a fan that gets activated when the user enters the hot areas associated with the wind sounds. The fan that is made of a dc motor is controlled with an Arduino Uno. The fan can rotate in both directions and with varying speed. (You can read more about this interactive object in the following link.)

Sounds represent water, wind, birds and insects- a small natural environment virtually augmented within physical space.
On a computer or a projection screen, the user can see a representation of himself and the various hot areas that trigger the audio signals, while on different window a waveform is being depicted every time a new audio signal is being trnasmitted.
