“Household series” is a set of three interactive pieces, done in Max/Msp/Jitter and produced for Navid Navab and Sha Xin Wei’s Real-Time Video class in late 2013.
- A candle: Wave your hand to blow on a candle. But be careful: wave too furiously and it’ll go out!
- A wind chime: Wave your hand to disrupt a physically simulated wind chime. Change the sound of the chime (e.g. milk bottles, tones).
- A pot of boiling water: Whistle to boil the pot. See video and GIF:
The informal video was taken by Xin Wei when I demoed the boiling pot to our class (in which my classmates save me from a case of dry lips!).
