Light Bead Curtain


Woven Sounds

Light Bead Curtain is an interactive sound installation consisting of a curtain made of interactive beads. Each of the beads light up and emit a unique sound when touched by a user, enabling passers-by to play with the curtain by weaving their hands through it. The simple and direct interaction with the curtain makes users understand how to play. Although the primary goal of the curtain is to engage its users in play, the curtain can also function as an interactive display, as each bead can be controlled and programmed via a computer.

Light Bead Curtain is created by Ami Wolf and Jin-Yo Mok. The latter also created the SoniColumn. Via Interactive Architecture dot Org. [blogged by Lene Mailund on Digital Experience]
