From May to July 2017 artist Akeelah Bertram, composer Aron Kyne and technologist Joanne Armitage will collaborate to develop Ultiverse.

We aim to create a user responsive display, developed through a combination of sculpture, light projection and sensors. 

This will be coupled with ethereal, reverberating audio and vibrations. Biophysical sensors will enable you to trigger multiple responses to create a conversational experience with the installation. 

Follow our development here, and let us know what you think!

The challenge was to introduce complex interactions to the existing light and sound installation Ultiverse. At the close of this R&D we present the ideas we began to manifest in the work.

Over the course of the R&D we have grappled with the concepts of co-creation and h...

In Phase 2 we were able to have a more in depth discussion with audience members abut their interaction with the work presented. Post Phase 2 we talked about the relationships between the sound, sensors and audiences. We spent some time looking at the steps we have tak...

I am open to criticism, and would like to think that I can take things on board. This has been my work/baby for the past two years, so it is a challenge at this stage to not only work collaboratively – in that setting you have to develop a group mentality not just for...

Today Joanne and I were looking at the set up for the installation at the Corn exchange next week. So far we have 6 arpeggio morphs that will be triggered by 6 sensors. We will also pair the sensors with visual reactions, in the form of an animated cube reflected in th...

Aron:  So far we have created a set of sounds based upon one source synth sound which we have called no.0. Then we have created 6 variations for on this sound and assigned them to the synths morph functions.  This has allowed us to change the parameters of each of the...

Akeelah, Aron & Joanne

Quite a tech-spec day, first part spent connecting Aron's synth to Joannes computer! Its taken the first 3 meetings to get our heads round the possibilities of the programming inputs and outputs.

Joanne is coding from a software called SuperCollide...

Akeelah and Joanne

Last week we were thinking about the relationship between the senses and our environment. Even though we regard the senses as separate, they work together to give a blended perception of our surroundings.

At this stage we want to approach the data the...

With Joanne Armitage, Akeelah Bertram and Aron Kyne

Joanne took us through various sensors the installation could use such as-

-Ultrasonic (distance)

-Light dependent resistors

-Galvanic skin response

-Heart rate sensors

-Pressure sensors

These are all exciting options. Findi...
