Yann Seznec & Patrick Hickey - The Secret Sounds of Spores, Sound Installation 2010

4y ago


Hidden under every mushroom, invisible to the naked eye, thousands of spores fall and are blown away by the tiniest current of wind. Shining a laser underneath a protected mushroom makes these spores visible. Using custom built software and hardware, we made a system that reacted in real time to make sounds to represent the natural processes inherent in the mushroom. This project was supported by an Alt-w award from New Media Scotland. The distribution of Alt-w awards is managed by New Media Scotland and funded by Scottish Screen, Scottish Arts Council and SICSA.
