Sound Bubbles

One of my first combinations of openCV (face/feature detection) and live pitch detection. This work detects faces and pitch, allowing viewers to 'blow' a bubble by singing. When the viewer stops singing, the bubble floats away and eventually pops.

Exhibited at Arteles (Hammenkyrö, Finland) and workshopped at high schools in Wisconsin and Illinois.

This and other works were the basis of the Ritari Hyvämielksi, or Finnish cultural knighthood, I was awarded in 2010.
