Biodata Sonification (2022)
For my senior project, I decided to create a project that addresses the relationships between physical space, sound, nature, and technology, After initial experiments in Touchdesigner, I wanted to try my hand at something more complex: using MIDI data generated by plants to control projected visuals. What sparked my interest in this type of project was my professor's mention of the MIDI Sprout, a device that he owned and would let me borrow to complete the project. After weeks of exploring different aesthetics for the projection, I ended up settling on using PBR materials in TouchDesigner to create abstract 3D visuals that remind me of the similarities between how plants and electronics operate.
Special thanks to my professor, John Colette, for supporting and guiding me throughout the entire project.
