Hertzian Playground

“We shape our technologies, then our technologies shape us, in ongoing cycles that produce our everyday physical and social environments.”
 – William J.Mitchell  “Me++: The Cyborg Self and The Networked City”

Hertzian Playground” imagines everyday technologies embedded in our lives (i.e., smartphones and the Internet) as an interface for musical expression driven by body dynamics. It turns daily usages of technology into performative gestures that prompt the resonance and exchange between people and devices, sound and body, exploring the agencies and collaborative capacities between humans and artifacts.

“Hertzian Playground” is the selected project of NTCH’s “Next Theater” open call, with members from diverse backgrounds including art, music, performance, film, curating, and programming. In the post-epidemic period, how can we utilize the advantages of digital technology to establish closer cooperation among people and devices? How do participants recognize their connection with others when using their smartphones, feel the liveliness, and get their bodies back?

“Hertzian Playground” hopes to respond to these questions, from prototyping to framework integrating and participatory practice, to continuously explore the entanglement between humans and artifacts with practical experience.

聲音生態學的實驗室裡都執行著怎樣的研究?上一回挑選了亞利桑那州立大學的Acoustic Ecology Lab,他們發展在地走聽、社區參與聲音錄製、傳感技術等,也分析聲景數據資料以了解環境生態。而臺灣在中研院由林子皓老師帶領的海洋聲景生態資訊實驗室,則聚焦在以遙測的方式蒐集聲音資料研究分析環境與變動與生物的多樣性,也探討人為活動如何影響環境生態。
