The installation attracts visitors’ senses offering a joyful gambling- game around musical, choreographical and cinematographical elements as dance & beat-boxing. The latter expression describes a form of vocal percussion from which the installation derives its title.
MindBox is a triple-channel ‘media catapult’ to be touched. The arm and buttons of the modified fruit machine function as a tactile interface to the actions of a filmed character whose vocal- & movement clusters can be re-composed and re-performed by the audience.
Mindbox was presented at the Sonic Interaction Design exhibition produced by BEK at the Norwegian Museum of Science, Technology and Medicine, May 29th – August 21st 2011.
