LY is a reimagining of our relationship with nature and is the result of a redesign process which started as a critique of the app SHELTER. The app represents an ontological view of nature which sees humans and nature as two separates. This project challenges this view and creates a more sensory and emotional nature experience, grounded in a holistic nature-human ontology. LY is a sensory experience that lets you interact with a nature soundscape through touch-based interactions. The physical installation consists of carefully selected nature elements which is combined to create a wall mounted panel that connote nature. When you put on the attached noise cancelling…

The Sensory Garden

The Sensory Garden was designed in collaboration with Bioteket Nørrebro; a volunteer-based green culture hub for sustainability that accommodates the growth of plants, music, art, social events and sustainable ideas. The goal was to make the space outside Bioteket more inviting while creating awareness about Bioteket among locals by enticing them to participate in a playful activity in green surroundings. The final design is a plant bed placed outside Bioteket with a screen hanging above it. The screen invites passers-by to interact with the plants by touching them. Touch is registered by the MPR121 capacitance sensor which activates sound and the screen to display information about…

Experiencing Soundscapes with Sonic Zoom

The project explores how visitors of green urban areas experience soundscapes through sonic interactiondesign. The empirical foundation for the project consists of two encounters with visitors in Byhaven - a small urban garden situated on Amager close to ITU. The project revolves around Sonic Zoom; a sonic interaction design artefact created by AIRLab. Sonic Zoom allows the user to zoom in on sounds in an environment by interacting with four wheels that control volume of sound. Sonic Zoom was fitted with four sounds. By wearing wireless headphones, the visitors were enabled to create a personal soundscape that enables different auditive experiences of the environment. Analysis…

Join Senses

Are paintings reserved for the seeing, and are aesthetic experiences primarily visual? We propose the prototype Join Senses that translates colors to sound and explores blind and visually impaired people’s challenges and experiences. Join Senses translates a painting’s colors to sound by applying the notion of crossing modalities. The theory for crossing modalities, in this case the visual and auditory, is that of artificial synesthesia, which literally means the joining of senses. Colors can be translated to sound, as there is a logical correlation and as they both have frequencies and are measured in Hertz. The translation of colors to sound in Join Senses is…
