Tracking you at the V&A digital weekend
Tine Bech's generative sound installation 'Tracking You' was received very well at the V&A's Digital Design Weekend, between the 22nd and 23rd of September 2012. Tracking You, and the broader Digital Design Weekend, received a large number of visitors, with many taking the opportunity to play with sound. The installation forms part of Tine's practice-based PhD research and uses people’s movements to generate sound.
Participants are invited to wear capes that are augmented with RFID tags. Through the use of real-time positioning technology the capes are tracked and generate sound dependant on location, speed and where they are according to each other. Participants can choose between five silk capes printed with a digital pattern in different colours. Each cape has its own sound profile.
