Cubey 1.0

Cubey 1.0 (2008, interactive digital media art installation)

Cubey 1.0 is an interactive digital media art installation that explores audio-visual and spatial relationships.  With its embedded sensors, Cubey 1.0 enables users to compose dynamic audio-visual compositions in real time.  Cubey 1.0 incorporates both a physical cubic sculpture and a digital 3D virtual model of this sculpture that is projected onto a wall.  This virtual model provides audio and visual feedback of users’ interaction with Cubey 1.0’s physical cubic sculpture.  Both the audio and visual feedback from Cubey 1.0 are linked; as users interact with the physical cubic sculpture, the projection of the 3D virtual cube changes shape, color, and scale while Cubey 1.0’s speakers simultaneously generate ambient digital sounds.  Cubey 1.0’s simple and easy-to-use interface offers users an exciting opportunity to explore interactive audio-visual and spatial relationships.
