Project Paperclip is a photography exhibit that uses real-time processed soundscapes. This video was filmed at the opening (Centro das Artes Casa das Mudas) and doesn’t reflect the interactivity of the software (no reactive sound is possible). Make sure you test it for yourself:http://www.discloseprojectpaperclip.com
The experience is unique each time it is activated as the app’s algorithm utilizes real-time processing of variables from the visitors location, such as: the time of day, the level of noise that exists in the room, your voice, the movement and localization of the user, amongst others.
The concept was imagined by Portuguese photographer Nuno Serrão, and by including the auditory canal, it tries to transport visitors to a state that gives them a different interpretation of the 16 photographs at the exhibit.
To make full use of this exhibition, visitors that have an iPhone 3 or above need to download Project Paperclip application, at the AppStore. The app developed especially for this exhibit scans the QR scans very easily, connecting to musical airwaves. Equipped with a headphones (the better the quality, the more immersive the simulation will be), switch on the App and follow instructions to activate the reactive soundscapes.
