Interactive designer Simon Bond is basically a mad scientist. The sound installation at the chocolate factory was one of the best interactive istallations I have ever been to. The aim of the installation was to control the flow of people in a room. When the room was empty a pleasant sound would play, attracting people toward it. However, when the room became full, an unpleasant sound would play, subtly prompting people to leave.
The installation also included a series of four hanging speakers, and four connected sound devices that interpret the amount of activity in the room. Each speaker would resonate at a different frequency, through a vibrating double bass string with a plotter pen attached to it, illustrating the sounds, creating individual abstract patterns. He is now starting research at the RCA into interactive toys for autistic children. Check his site for updates on his work…
