On a Human Scale is an ongoing project to create a growing interactive instrument out of everyday people from around the world. It subverts the perfection of digital technology in order to celebrate the splendid imperfection of people – to breath humanity into the machine and put it back into the hands of the public.

A piano in the center of a space controls a Human Piano projected around the player. Each key triggers a different video of a different person from a different walk of life singing a different note. When played all together they fuse into an awe-inspiring new media choir that is totally under the control of whoever is at the keyboard.
