Created by: Interactive Media Collective and Griffith University From: Queensland, Australia

A group of human powered electronic sound sculptures explores the output of electronic sound through the transference of energy beginning with human kinetic action.

Six different sound and light making mechanisms referred to as T.H.E.M (The Handmade Electric Machines) comprise an ensemble of electronic instruments that can be played together or separately.

Creative collaborators from Griffith University’s Interactive Media Lab team includes musicians, designers and artists. They are committed to sustainable concerns by maximising the creative expression from limited materials and using small amounts of energy. Their intention is for the audience to appreciate their direct participation with generating renewable electricity and having fun being part of an ensemble of electronic instruments.

Students from Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University will play the sound devices during a curator’s tour. Workshops will accompany this artwork.
