Jason Ponce, Primal ScreenPrimal Screen is an interactive multimedia experience that offers no content other than what the visitors provide. It presents a series of brief but intimate encounters with the inner lives of the friends and strangers that surround us, encapsulated in a single moment of expression, vulnerability and catharsis. Visitors are encouraged to contribute to the work by recording a scream according to the instructions found in the recording area. The scream itself can be one of happiness or frustration, joy or anger, tension or release. Recorded screams are played back in random order in the viewing area.
Cooper Baker, Ringtones
Ringtones is an interactive sound sculpture that generates algorithmic music based on any ten digit number dialed by a participant. Ten digits equates to ten billion unique phone numbers which means the phone is capable of creating ten billion unique pieces of music. The phone's original circuitry was modified and a microcontroller was grafted into useful parts such as the keypad, hook, indicator light, and speaker. The microcontroller senses the state of the earpiece, waits for a phone number, then configures and plays the synthesis algorithm to create a piece of music.
