Abstract
Collaborations between artists, engineers, and scientists often occur when creating new media works. These interdisciplinary efforts must overcome the ideals and practical-limitations inherent in both artistic and research pursuits. In turn, successful projects may truly be greater than the sum of their parts, enabling each collaborator to gain insight into their own work. soundSense, a cooperative effort between engineers, composers, and other specialists, sonifies pyroelectic sensor data to create a novel interactive-media event. Signals generated by multiplexing pyroelectric detectors inform datadriven audio and visual displays articulating – in real-time – the presence and motion of individuals within the sensed space.
