Netherlands media Arts Institute
It's an acoustically-coupled analog neural network, consisting of a society of devices whose behaviour collectively changes in response to the pitch ascendancy or descendency that each one detects. The project consists of two embodiments: a society of sonic devices distribuited in a room and a mechanism for recording and reviewing the history of the population. It is hoped that collective behaviours of the devices will be affected by the way that the room is occupied and, as such, the room will develop a "perception" of its occupancy.
