Social media balloon, Blow UP!

a participatory sound installation in which a “social media balloon” is blown up by participants through their reading-out-loud of comments and posts on their social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Wechat, Twitter, Tiktok etc.). We keep feeding the social media balloon until it explodes! (hoping for a cathartic experience)

The voice and content of the audience will trigger an air-pump, a digital speech synthesis patch and synchronized flash light, which´s purpose is to magnify, transform and mechanize the human voice and the overwhelming informations and trivialities that we produce and find ourselves bombarded with in our digital lives.
