From May 13th to 22nd an installation will be in place near the campus of Parsons The New School for Design in Manhattan called SoundAffects. This experimental project involves sensors that pick up visual, aural and electronic inputs from things like the weather, sounds, cell phone activity and temperature. These inputs are then given a musical sound and color so people can see and hear alternative versions of what is happening on the street.
