Drawing Sound Wall

Takuya Suga

A large digital display to which visitors can upload doodles, drawn either on mobile devices or on pieces of paper. Uploaded doodles come to life and move around autonomously within the screen, bumping into other doodles and eventually merging to become larger doodles. Sound effects can be assigned to the doodles, which are played back whenever doodles bump into each other — creating an ever-changing background music for Sony Park.
