Moori: An interactive installation based on Mobile Technology and SMS
Harvestworks is pleased to present Moori by artist Haeyoung Kim as part of Soho Night, an evening of extended exhibition viewing and special programs by the not-for-profit arts organizations in Soho. These works were produced in part through the Harvestworks Artist In Residence Program.
Moori is an interactive installation combining audience-participatory narrative and audio-visuals. By exploiting innovations in network-based personal devices such as smart phones and tablets as well as SMS, Moori allows users to build real-time collaborative storytelling through exchanging messages. Dynamic narrative is established through open dialogue among participants and through questions and answers posed by audience and the system. Other OSC control methods such as buttons and multi-touch pad allow multiple user-data to generate algorithmic audio and visuals. The result is a collaboration among audience members, a real time audio–visual composition and a dynamic narrative.
Please see below instructions for setting up your iPhone to participate in this installation.
