Tone

Interactive Art Installation

Tone is an interactive art installation that aims to disrupt public transit rider’s daily routine in an engaging fun way. Tone aims to encourage users to collaborate and work as a team for a rich sensory experience

   

 

 

How it works

  • Each installation consists of 4 Smart ebikes mounted on a platform at high traffic areas. 
  • Each Smart ebike has a unique beat assigned to it
  • The rider can chose to pedal faster, slower or break to manipulate the beat
  • As users start pedalling, the screen projects a visual on to the existing environment to ignite curiosity & invite others to participate

The more people engage in the installation, the richer the music the visuals, become. Tone disrupts the daily routine of commuters by providing a fun & engaging experience in an urban setting.

Process

Case studies were done to see how people would describe their local; Istanbul. After the interviews, ‘Culture Cocktail’ stood out and was picked as a departure point. These interviews had a great impact on what the stool looked like.

Sculpture, Aluminum & Bronze Casting

Exhibited during the 198 th GradX at OCAD University.

The aim for this project was to investigate bronze and aluminum casting processes. The idea was to be informed by nature, not to imitate it. The result is an aluminum and bronze casted scarab, Kolde Ben.
 

Process

A costume covered with jewel like scarabs, worn by a Danish performer, Oh Land, triggered my research about scarabs and insects.

Cemedanî Network

This is a conceptual communication network that allows people to send brief, physical messages to their families or loved ones that can be kept by the receiver.

The network uses cemedanî, as a medium to communicate. Cemedanî is a traditional, square headdress for both men and women that is generally worn around the neck for protection from direct sun or other extreme weather conditions or as a belt, around the waist. The checkered pattern on a typical cemedanî is believed to date back to ancient Mesopotamia and their representation of fishing nets and ears of grain1. My imaginary network will send these messages through cemedanî by adding text onto the usual pattern that the sender desires to send.

This is the visual component of the conceptual communication network. If you are interested in the research paper, feel free to contact me.
