Aurora I

Aurora is an interactive, real time visualization of the VLF range of the electromagnetic spectrum using a small magnetic antenna fed into a high definition sound card. Aurora was shown at the 2012 ITP Spring Show.

The Electron Altar

The Electron Altar plays off of the idea of “believing in electrons”. In 2008, scientists captured, using extremely short laser pulses (a quantum stroboscope), the motion of an electron on film. Perhaps seeing is believing?

Audio Reactive Jellyfish

The movement and luminosity of each of the four creatures corresponds with the maximum amplitude of four defined audio frequency ranges (corresponding with bass, lower middle, upper middle, and treble range). Soundflower is used to redirect audio input into the
