Wrong Plug has been selected for BIP - Building Interactive Playgrounds, a festival for interaction design projects for public spaces and events.


Wrong Plug is an interactive space generated by a wrong gesture.
By inserting a plug in the wrong outlet.

It's an attempt to generate new kinds of relationships, interweaving the wires of various media that reproduce them, thus performing a deviation.

Wrong Plug consists of a 90 angle-tilted camcorder facing a group of vertical elastic stripes.
The video signal of the camcorder is translated into an audio stream, exploiting the horizontal scanning of the image used by digital camcorders.

When the elastic stripes are displaced from their vertical position of equilibrium, the video signal that describes them modifies itself, generating new frequencies into the audio stream.

Simultaneously, an application developed using Processing draws on a screen digital vertical stripes that modify their width and colour according to audio stream.

In the space included between the projection of the digital stripes along with the frame containing the elastic stripes, lies the space of interaction, the place of a natural interface that allows the physical experience and the transmitted media to comunicate.

Thus, manipulating the elastic stripes, the user feeds a circular process that involves sound, images and space.
