SonoCelestia is an art and technology exercise on organic data that explores the intricacies of the earth sky by using a different channel to perceive it: audio
By decontextualizing nature’s information digitally, we can understand different phenomena that wouldn’t be appreciated otherwise
SonoCelestia uses propietary software, a PC, a camera and open source electronics to capture nature’s phenomena into digital data than can be further processed
Organic data is all about grabbing phenomena information from natural resources using digital technology and making use of it.
The system comprises different elements, which include a camera with a photoresistor, an arduino board and two softwares, one that captures information into a special very simple custom file format/protocol, and the other which produces the visual and audio output, including the optics.
At the end, every video was assembled by a Linux bash script that takes every image and creates a video with the corresponding audio. The first video tool that was used on any of those videos was the video player itself, as no video editing/making tools were used to create them, just code.
