RadianceScape 2016

Share

RadianceScape 2016 is a data-score installation. The sound and visuals are generated based on the latest radiation data-set collected from the Safecast.org – a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements. The scanning laser technique is used to construct the dialogue between space and the data-visualization. Different tonal drone ambience and noises are generated base on the radioactivity.

The sound samples are captured with an electromagnetic field detector device. In the sound composition it is based on the relative radiation data to generate different tones of drone ambience and noise. The graphic scores were composed using the mapped data-log. It consists of two separate parts, first illustrating the route through Hong Kong, visualizing the radiation levels from Mongkok to the Tsim Sha Tsui area. The second part illustrates the route through Fukushima, visualizing the radiation levels from the Fukushima Prefecture to the nuclear power plant.

It is successfully dropped off in Ars Electronica Festival for last few days. Hopefully it gave a different perspective to the audience in the Deep Space 8K: http://www.aec.at/radicalatoms/en/deep-space-8k-radiancescape/
