Interactive art

Niall QUINN / Oliver WILSHEN


Sonophore is a site-specific interactive sound installation. Unspooled audio cassette tape is attached to the walls of the site, and a special device attached to a glove is used by visitors to reproduce the sound recorded on the tape, thereby easily creating effects such as fast forward, rewind, and play. The physical arrangement of the unspooled tape along the walls also has an aesthetic effect that adds a sense of mystery to the exhibition space.
