SenseBus

An Art and Robotics Group project

Remembering in states of you,
the feeling of your bright light sound wave,
like a shaking timber.
Together we make a song to filter light and bathe.
Changing, resting, disappearing.

SenseBus is a collaboratively built, interactive sensory environment. There is no central "brain." There are no screens, mice or keyboards. Using the type of microprocessors found in washers and dryers, the SenseBus system circulates sense information within a distributed network of sensory modules.

Vibrations from people in the space, from activities within the building and from external traffic modulate light waves, which are projected onto the walls in concentric circles. These waves of light are sensed, transformed and expressed as sound back into the local environment. Thus the SenseBus creates an ongoing interplay of tactile vibration, light and sound.

What is truly unique about SenseBus is the way in which it was made. A dozen artists have created an artwork that is conceptually, physically and operatively one system. Skill-sharing, idea-sharing and consensus were integral to the realization of the SenseBus installation. Instead of the traditional individualism of the artist, the SenseBus group chose a collaborative working process that mirrors the structure of the artwork.
