Have we mentioned how much we love Instagram? It’s one of the best social networks, where you can discover interesting projects, photos, brands and artists. Back in July, we found this amazing interactive art installation created by Tampa-based design firm, the Urban Conga and two muralists Sebastian Coolidge and Justin Wagher.
The ‘Ambient Play’ installation features murals that trigger sounds when touched, so people can interact and engage with one another through music and art.
Watch the short video to learn more about the process of the installation.
Sebastian and Justin designed these murals using Electric Paint and the Touch Board. They drew out the imagery by hand and integrated Electric Paint into the visual language. The Electric Paint then connected to the Touch Board to trigger sound into the space through a speaker system. Different parts of the mural produced different sounds. Sebastian described the project as a surreal and multi-dimensional concept, where people had the ability to see and experience what they haven’t seen before. Justin also incorporated traditional Japanese illustration into his mural while keeping it simple and letting the audience interact with it in their own way.
The goal of ‘Ambient Play’ was to connect people, visitors to the exhibition could meet other participants and interact with one another through the sounds of the artwork.
To experience the installation for yourself just put your headphones on and check out the ‘Ambient Play’ video.
