String Tension


The sensor on the work identifies the distance between it and the visitor. When the visitor approaches, the installation generates a magnetic field on the piano string for it to vibrate, and the string creates a sound, whose characteristics are defined by its own length. When the visitor moves, the robot on the piano string moves along together to change the robot on the string ‘play’ the sound together. The changes in the sounds also modifies the graphics displayed on the computer screen, thereby expanding the response space of the work
