Scream Now: Screaming Booth

The project is to first build a prototype, then, a series of public screaming booths in various arts centers around the world. Using an app to connect the user and the booth, each scream will produce expressive LED patterns visible from the outside of the booth as well as via the app.

Screaming is powerful, it has a lot of negative connotations but can have a lot of positive effects. I am interested in taking a fundamental and archaic human expression such as a scream and transforming its raw power into eloquent electronic visuals, thus generating a tension between our humanistic and our mechanistic sense of being.
