Concept image of SonoScriptum

Sonoscritpum is a new interactive art work that aims to create a drawing surface where the paintbrush is your voice, or anything that produces sound. LED lights are programmed to be  sensitive to sound frequency which is then reflected as color. Through this synesthesia between sound and color, you can discover and play with your own voice and observe the dynamic surface respond to the sound of its surroundings.

   

Antonin’s project continues his research that investigates ludicity, gamification, interaction and materials. Antonin will give a presentation to share his ideas, designs and development process throughout the residency. He will also exhibit prototypes of SonoScritpum and give people the opportunity to try it out.

Agenda:

  • 5:30pm – Arrival, drinks and nibbles
  • 6:00pm – Presentation + Q&A
  • 6:30pm – Engage with prototypes

Antonin Fourneau received an Art Diploma from Aix-en-Provence Art School, followed by a post Diploma in Interactive Art in the Design School of ENSAD Paris. Since his graduation, Antonin has been focused on interactive art and popular culture.

It allows for a French creative practitioner to be hosted at Colab in Auckland. The residency enables the development of new initiatives and joint collaborations and allows a French creative professional to come to New Zealand for a period of 3 months.
