Sonar Duel

a collaboration with Will Copps

Two TVs stand off in a computer-generated audio/visual dialogue. Sonar sensors embedded in the televisions and connected to hidden computers converse: the sonars’ interaction triggers coding in the computers that creates unique patterns on the screens.

On their own, the TVs "talk" to each other, moving in and out of visual and harmonic sync. People can literally step into the conversation by standing between the two televisions, generating human-like responses in the sonar dialogue. TV patterns, colors, and sounds appear to reflect emotions such as happiness, agitation, and even jealousy. The interaction of the sonars with each other and with people in the space generates random coding in real time, so that audio and visual effects are dependent on the changing environment.
