Proximity Om

This installation was made in collaboration with phenomenal artist Om Unit.

It uses a piece of physics known as Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction in order to transfer audio waves between two separate circuits dependant on their proximity to each other.

The track The Exodus was split into 3 parts, and each audio signal is being sent through a wire in the installation. The ‘pickup’ contains a custom circuit that will listen to those audio waves and make them audible. Where the wires cross, so do the audio signals. Allowing you to pick and mix parts of the track based on where you hold the pickup in physical space.
