binary exploring physical and digital self
bInary is an interactive sound installation featuring seven stations that represent common aspects of modern life in the digital age. Most stations center around modern technology, and its central role in many aspects of society. Users engage with each station to do various tasks, including inputting personal data, manipulating touch screens, typing out social media posts, taking selfies, and recording greetings. The combined stations, done consecutively, take on a ritualistic nature, taking habitual aspects of everyday life and exposing them to stand alone. bInary takes data from interactions with the stations to create a sonic representation of those who interact with it, revealing the disconnect between personal identity and the use of data representation as self.
bInary was completed in fulfillment of a Master of Music degree in Music Composition at Western Michigan University. View the official thesis documentation here.
