Sonic Explorerkinetic audio installation
role:

Szymon Kaliski (from flow/control) collaborated with talented Marek Straszak on interactive audio art piece, built for Art+Bits festival in 2014, and later exhibited at WRO Biennale 2015, the biggest Polish new-media art biennale.

The installation consists of five steel deconstructed icosahedrons, equipped with Arduinos and solenoids, which can be wirelessly controlled by a touchscreen interface. Solenoids hit the steel frame making sound, and because all of the geometries are different, the frequencies they make differ too.

The heart of the installation was a minimalistic touchscreen-based UI, which allowed visitors to sequence solenoids hits.
