Temporary installation by creative agency mono and engineered by Tellart in collaboration with Parsons The New School’s communications and external affairs team. Sensors installed within the SoundAffects installation track light, sound, temperature, vertical and horizontal motion, cell phone activity, and color.
Passersby can experience the music by either plugging headphones into the installation’s wall jacks, or listening online at www.soundaffectsnyc.com. The multicolored visual display will be projected onto the installation at night, and also can be viewed online alongside a live street view. Both the music and visuals will be affected by changes in the levels of what the sensors are monitoring; for example, noisy traffic, an abundance of red jackets, or rain, will all make noticeable differences.
