Cubey 1.0 (2008, interactive digital art installation) Cubey 1.0 is an interactive digital art installation that explores audio-visual and spatial relationships. With its embedded sensors, Cubey 1.0 enables users to compose dynamic audio-visual compositions in real time. The Cubey 1.0 incorporates both a physical cubic
sculpture and a digital 3D virtual model of this sculpture that is projected onto a wall. This virtual model provides audio and visual feedback of users’ interaction with Cubey 1.0’s physical cubic sculpture. Both the audio and visual feedback from the Cubey 1.0 are linked; as users interact with the physical cubic sculpture, the projection of the 3D virtual cube changes shape, color and scale while simultaneously generating ambient digital sounds from Cubey 1.0’s speakers. Cubey 1.0’s simple and easy-to-use interface offers users an exciting opportunity to explore interactive audio-visual and spatial relationships.

echnical Statement

David R. Burns created a physical cubic sculpture with embedded electronic sensors and connected it to a computer, projector and speakers to create the Cubey 1.0. The Cubey 1.0 incorporates a custom patch created with Max/MSP/Jitter software that enables its electronic sensors to measure users’ physical interaction with the physical cubic sculpture of the Cubey 1.0.
