Hive 2.0 is an interactive sound sculpture


Makers explore ways to converge new and familiar mediums with artistically technological practices.


Developed by Toronto-based collaborative duo Hopkins Duffield, Hive 2.0 is an interactive sound sculpture comprised of 50 speakers, seven audio channels, an Arduino Uno (ATmega328) and Max 6 / Max For Live. The installation is equipped with a set of ultrasonic sensors, each of which are assigned to an audio channel, that activate audio playback based on the proximity of those its viewers.
