In other news, YPL , Kling Klang Klong and Waltz Binaire,

with funding from the Knight Foundation, are creating a commission for

the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, a Future Fires project. 
Leap Motion and Plantronics are the corporate partners.

Resonance is designed to give visitors the experience of seeing, hearing, and interacting with water. Our hope is that it will help ignite a visceral experience, making vivid the reality of water outside of its identity as a commodity. We'd like people to (re) experience some of the magic and mystery of something so common it's often taken for granted. 

How does Resonance work? As visitors interact with the virtual "surface" of the water, via Leap Motion sensors, what is seen is translated into sound. An array of speakers deliver a spatial impression of water, changing in real time as visitors touch and change what they are watching and hearing. 

Thanks to the Knight Foundation, and to The Tech, for commissioning this piece. It's a global team of great talent, and Future Fires is honored and thrilled to be in the mix! We look forward to showing you images of the build, and hope you can join us for the opening in April at the Tech Museum.
