Steps

Interactive Sound Installation

The interactive audio installation “Steps“ was installed in the Museum Dr. Guislain in Gent Belgium as part of the group exhibition “Imagining the Brain, Imagining Human“, which responded to the concept of “Anxiety“.During my research into paranoia, I found how a single perceived sound would trigger a spiral of thoughts, resulting in exaggerated fear. Visitors walked into the corridor where their steps were following them. Who was following them? A mysterious beast lurking in the dark? Old memories that they had almost forgotten? Or just their harmless step, echoing from a speaker above? 

 

 

 

 

The steps were recorded with several piezo microphones on wood plates and then altered with echo and reverb in real-time. The video presented above is a reconstruction of the installation demonstrating the concept.
