[ISEA2012] Artist talk: Nick Hwang – SOCIAL STRUCTURE [CONSTRUCTION NO. 1]

Artist Statement

Social Structure [Construction no. 1] addresses concepts of resonance, feedback, deconstruction, and inundation in the contexts of sound, music, audience interaction, and social media. The installation is a collection of position-aware resonant acrylic cubes with tactile transducers. With the use of computer vision and projection, audience/ participant interactions with the cubes control the responding audio and video. A resonator-laden platform, on which the structures are built, will continuously feedback all aural material, causing the entire structure system to shake and buckle on its own resonance.
