McLuhan’s Ear

McLuhan’s Ear (2009, interactive digital media art installation with 3D printed ear)

By speaking into a physical, 3D printed, disembodied ear that Burns designed, participants compose dynamic, computer-generated, animated visuals and musical rhythms with McLuhan’s Ear.  Participants both can bend a representation of Marshall McLuhan’s ear by sharing their secrets or thoughts on communications and artistically express themselves by exploring virtual representations of the physical in this immersive and interactive visual music installation.
