Plink Blink Installation

Plink Blink

May 16, 2015

Plink Blink, an interactive art installation, allows three participants to make collaborative music by blinking their eyes. The idea is to create unconventional collaboration through an uncommon physical interaction. The work debuted at ACE (Advances in Computer Entertainment) 2014, and will be presented at ISEA (International Symposium on Electronic Art) 2015 and FILE (Electronic Language International Festival) 2015. It is a collaboration between Ozge Samanci, Blacki Rudi Migliozzi, and myself.

It uses a customized derivative of the FaceOSC OpenFrameworks code to accurately detect blinking, and then sends OSC messages to PureData where a sampling algorithm allows a customized selection of samples to be played by each individual participant. When each participant combines his/her sounds with the others in the room, it allows for creative collaboration and musical play in a unique way.
