LINES by Anders Lind.

LINES is an interactive sound art exhibit by Anders Lind that allows users to make music by moving their hands and feet over lines. The lines are paired with sensors and electronics to create the sounds of three different instruments. It works by distance sensors that are connected to an arduino board on a mac mini. The signals from users hands are then translated from distance to sound. Lind created LINES to allow people to experience a new form of musical interactions and experiences. 

I admire that this project has a direct correlation between human interaction and the sound produced. People can work together, or participate alone and the results will always be different based on how the people move their hands. I thought it was very interesting how Lind even incorporated the lines on the floor too to create more possibilities of interaction.
