THRIVE Monash University Open Day 2016

THRIVE was an installation created by Melbourne-based design collective NODE in collaboration with a group of current Monash University architecture students for the University marketing department. The space was designed to respond to it’s environment through light, modulated sound and movement.Infrared proximity sensing was used as the sensory input for the lighting and sound system to detect the presence of people in the room.  The sound was generated in real time using Abelton Live and output on a 10 channel surround sound system, resulting in an immersive 3-Dsoundscape.

For this project I was responsible for the overall concept design, electrical and audio systems design and fabrication, as well as the lighting and sound design. I was also responsible for the embedded programming as well as some other software to support the interaction between the sensing system and ableton live.
