MindBending AV: Kinetic Audio Installations
Kinetic audio installations feature visual and sonic motion to create a unique audio and sensory experience for the viewer. To create this hybrid experience of noise and visual stimulus, artists can use a variety of different techniques ranging from robotic technology to simple signal processing. However, all of these installations depend on algorithms to move between the visual and the sonic in a coherent way. The definition of a kinetic audio installation is actually quite loose. For example, something as simple as a wind chime could in fact be considered a kinetic audio device as it generates audio content as it is moved without the interaction of direct human contact. But, with such a wide encompassing definition is a large area within which to create.

MindBending AV: iPad-controlled Experimental Displays
This collection of MindBending displays are much more than glorified iPad creations. Instead, the iPad is integrated into the installation, functioning as a part of the overall system, not the forefront of the project. Interestingly, the iPad has taken on the function of a MIDI controller, a tangible interface for a system that exists primarily in a processing program. While the iPad is a physical object, there is very little disconnect between the digital life of the installation and the digital modifications made by the iPad. Ostensibly, the only thing holding the viewer back from access the digital world of these displays is the touch screen on the iPad.
