The Installation

We 3D printed the wireless sphere for user interaction, and built the enclosing large sphere out of laser-cut plexiglass. We integrated motion and accelerometer sensors inside the smaller sphere to capture precise changes in movement. All of the data was fed into Max and Ableton Live to trigger and control audio data – which then manipulated the generative visualizations.
