Descartes Corridor

An Interactive Installation created by John Wild as part of the vanishing point Exhibition at Elevator Gallery London [28/10/10 – 14/11/10].
Descartes Corridor made use of a sonic range finder to create an invisible sonic beam running down the center of the galleries corridor from a fixed point at its entrance. When a person entered the corridor, the distance between the entrance and the person was calculated. The distance data was then processed via a speech synthesizer and spoken from a wall-mounted speaker.
