Happiness Too, Is Inevitable.
Happiness, Too, Is Inevitable. is an ambient audiovisual installation driven by data
collected from its environment. Light, temperature, and pressure sensors
inconspicuously installed around the space influence the sounds and images presented. The
source of all sounds and images is the word "happiness." Given a very particular, and
extremely unlikely, environmental state, the word "happiness" will clearly emerge from the
jumble of sounds and colors. This perfect state is essentially unobtainable, and I find
great joy in observing the alternate versions of "happiness" that do emerge.
Happiness, Too, Is Inevitable. has been presented at the
Festival of Mixology 2003 and the
Listening in the Sound Kitchen festival.
