The Awe of the Other – Aldeburgh Beach, Suffolk

A collaboration with Pauline Bickerton.

2 over size chairs 500 meters apart, connected with headphones allow people to have a surprising encounter with one another. The results were installed in a modified Bakelite radio using a small Arduino and digital amplifier.

Transducers were used to bring the sounds from the chairs to an audience in the Aldeburgh Lookout. The windows and fabric of the building were used in various ways to act as loudspeakers.
