Multichannel audio-visual installation commissioned for the Design Research Conference, 29th June 2016, The Grand Hotel, Brighton Seafront, Consort Room.
Thermostasis is a reactive sensory installation concerning room temperature and humidity of the inhabited environment. The installation aims to sonify and visualise energy use, highlighting the over-consumption of unsustainable energy resources for personal comfort. The growth of global consumption and the unsustainable demand for energy (heating/cooling systems) in commercial and domestic spaces leads to a mass societal dissociation and detachment from the energy source. This has a detrimental impact on the ecosystem and our environmental surroundings. Thermostasis seeks to articulate this relationship with an audio-visual feedback display materialising the individual’s impact on their immediate surroundings.
