Texture-to-sound translator, TeTo /// Portfolio: Arts, Urban Planning, Technology

SAMSUNG CSCAs part of my residency in Berlin, I produced “TeTo”, short for Texture-Tone. TeTo is an object that I used to convert the texture of the ground into sounds and noises, through the act of dragging. Composed of a speaker system embedded within a suitcase, the device measures the bumps of the ground as the suitcase rolls and interprets these measurements into sounds.

TeTo as produced at the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik in Berlin as part of an artist-in-residence program from March-July 2014, and was presented at the Affective Cities conference in August 2014. Special thanks to Jörg Weiß for the raw video and photos, and Scott Kobewka for the final video.
