Pipe is an interactive installation that users can control each pipe’s linear movement, light and sound. When users hover their hand above a pipe, it detects the change in light and responds by moving upwards and producing a sound. The eight pipes represent the universal eight notes; also, each pipe can be programmed with different sound that engages and intrigues the users. Users become composers conducting the row of pipes to create their own musical score.
