Title: Hive
Writing Type: Sketch / Art Talk

Exhibition: SIGGRAPH Asia 2017: Mind-Body Dualism
Abstract Summary:

With HIVE, we intended to explore the idea of a sonic intelligence: learning, experiencing, reacting, and finally, “thinking” in sound. Can we model such a system? A system with a body whose morphology is based on picking up and sending sound signals, a system who can learn from its environment and evolve in its response, a pseudo ‘being’ that traces our sonic foot-print and projects our sonic reflection. Created via fusing aspects of sculptural form, spatial sound, interactive methods, and machine learning, HIVE is an art installation that explores the relationship between sound, space, body, and communication.
