“talking chairs”


When a person sits down, the movement of the chair is a reflection of that person’s actions and interests. When we sit on revolving chairs, we turn to the person who we are talking with or slowly sway on our chair as we think. In this work we attach a sensor and motor to the chairs’ rotation axis and record the chair’s movement during a conversation to “reenact” that “scene”. Moreover, this scene takes in the current surrounding sound and changes interactively.
