OHNO Mari / NAGATA Kosuke

Media installation [Japan]

This artwork features a large membrane hanging in the exhibition space which is vibrated by the sound of the viewer’s blood flow detected in real time. Music can be played by controlling the vibration through variations of tension in the membrane. It is an attempt to produce something different to a string or tympanic instrument, a giant musical space that coexists with the environment.
