SUIT (2009 - 2010)
SUIT encompasses an on-going series of sound-based works with a self-built PVC performance overall, which is equipped with a loudspeaker, and sensors that register the performer’s heart movements and the humidity inside the suit.
A Doppler heart sensor, humidity sensor and a 7’’ loudspeaker were installed in a commercially available rain suit for go-kart drivers. The suit causes the performer to sweat and the heart rate to rise during a performance. The registered humidity and heart movement data are used to synthesize sound, which is emitted by the loudspeaker in the back of the suit. Thus, the generated sound thematizes the interaction between the performer’s visceral body and the technological suit.
