Interactive Installation - July 2014
Arduino, Solenoids, LDR, Wood

Inspired by Byrnes’ installation “Playing the Building” and the atmosphere of the site, I decided to create an installation involving not only sound but also light and shadows.

People often used a totem to serve as a reminder of their ancestry. Using a metallic beam, acoustic totem is a reminder of the building's industrial. By moving, dancing, wandering around the totem, the audience creates shadows that triggered a series of solenoids placed all the way long the beam and creating industrial noises.
