SBSGSG 1.0 (Sao Bento Sound Ground Symbol Garden) Porto, Portugal 2010
In the main hall of the central railway station Sao Bento in Porto, an installation was placed. The installation was interactive and connected to a camera. The camera registered the movements when people walked by or moved in the front of certain symbols that appeared on a wall. The movements triggered sounds from the computer connected to the camera. The sounds were connected to the environment at the central station, including field recordings and certain modulations. The graphic symbols were inspired by particular details from the central station and redesigned.
