About this piece:

effluence/effusive are a complementary pair of interactive works, exhibited together.

effusive: Speaking to the ear causes the mouth to respond with flowing sugar. I custom-built a circuit with a microcontroller (Basic Stamp) which analyzes the sound level of the room and triggers the mechanism when it peaks beyond a pre-defined threshold.

 

Title: effusive
Year: 1999
