Tunnel Vision

Ode to Nicolas Tesla

November 16, 2012

Tunnel Vision is an interactive light and sound installation inspired by the famous Nicolas Tesla, inventor, physicist, mechanical and electrical engineer.
The shape of the work is based upon an abstraction of the 100Hz buzz tone produced by electrical generators (invented by Tesla). This effect is known as magnetostriction; a property of ferromagnetic materials that causes them to change their shape when subjected to a magnetic field. Users can interact with the installation, altering the animation frequency of the light emitting wires and the sound.
