Made specially for the Audio Art Lab exhibition at the Turnpike Gallery (July - September 2006) Produce Consume Pollute is an audio visual exploration of the dichotomy between desire and the effect of achieving the desire.
The interface - 3 joysticks on a coffee table coupled with colourful, pixelated graphics makes for a very accessible and alluring experience. Users want to play/paint and as they do leave a trail. These trails are alo converted into sound, the expectation is of an instrument and musical experience.
Technically the work is a precursor to "aura:the stuff that forms around you" and conceptually plays with the realet concepts. Users enjoy flying the cursors around the screen, drawing images but are also challenged by the audio that results from their interaction.
