Floating Field

Interactive Sound Installation

Floating Field is an interactive sound installation using movement from the audience to create sound. A sea of helium balloons is floating just above the floor, filling the room. The balloons move and sway when the viewer walks through and triggers a sound from the balloons. Lots of movement creates multiple sounds but when the viewer stands still the sounds fade away. The audience can thus create their own compositions.

Programmed by Tarim.
Filmed by Nicolai Amter at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
