Instrumentalization of Space.
I am designing a visual + musical instrument using acoustic and digital technologies. As a continuation of Mack Suprastudio’s year-long research on “Performance + Architecture”, we have been looking into various ways to use visual and musical contents to alter atmospheres interactively and sensibly using custom designed instruments which can be played intuitively. The instrument will be used as an input device interchanging serial data with MIDI and DMX information to create instantly responsive and intuitively playable controllers.
In this independent design, I was inspired by Human Figure Photography. As a guitar player, I aim to rebuild a digital guitar into a form that unfamiliar to everyone. The language is from the curve and shape of human figure, the form of the guitar will be part of the player visually and fit into the position where attach player's body functionally.
This instrument is a small fabrication but integrating organic form design, 3d printing, electronic prototyping platform, music production and performance.
