Echology: an interactive spatial sound and video artwork
We present a novel way of manipulating a spatial soundscape, one that encourages collaboration and exploration. Through a tabletop display surrounded by speakers and lights, participants are invited to engage in peaceful play with Beluga whales shown through a live web camera feed from the Vancouver Aquarium in Canada. Eight softly glowing buttons and a simple interface encourage collaboration with others who are also enjoying the swirling Beluga sounds overhead. Categories and Subject Descriptors J.5 ARTS AND HUMANITIES General Terms Design, Experimentation, Human Factors Keywords Mediascape, sound spatialization, interactive art, Beluga whale
