“We shape our technologies, then our technologies shape us, in ongoing cycles that produce our everyday physical and social environments.” -William J.Mitchell “Me++: The Cyborg Self and The Networked City”

“Hertzian Playground” imagines everyday technologies embedded in our lives (i.e., smartphones and the Internet) as an interface for musical expression driven by body dynamics. It turns daily usages of technology into performative gestures that prompt the resonance and exchange between people and devices, sound and body, exploring the agencies and collaborative capacities between humans and artifacts.
