Ghent Electrified

interactive sound installation
Ghent, Belgium

Ghent Electrified was created during the Belgium based TimeLab’s Summercamp Electrified. It is based on drawings made in the city of Ghent and relies on extending the notion of drawing by using graphite as an electrical conduit.

The audience’s drawn lines are used as input for this digital environment and controlled by an Arduino.

Inspired by local the art scene Gina Haraszti and collaborator Agoston Nagy were open to create locative drawings to “scan” the the city while walking around, creating the algorithmic patterns of streets on paper. These along with the audience’s drawings control the sonic environment, which evokes the sounds of Ghent.
