“Chemical Conjuring” shown at Trondheim Kunstforening 10/1 – 10/2 -2013.
The installation “Chemical Conjuring” responds to alcohol fumes. By singing or breathing into the microphone different sounds will be triggered, but only if your breath contains alcohol. The sounds include drunken bums singing, bottles, domestic squabble, puking and other alcohol related stuff. The volume is dependant on the alcohol level.
Technical: An arduino gets values from a breathalyzer sensor and sends data to the program pure data running on an old pc. The PC is running the lightweigth OS “Crunchbang linux”. All software is open source.
