TRAFFIC

By coming to Science Gallery you are participating in and contributing to an ever-changing soundscape. Sensors positioned inside and outside the gallery monitor your movement through the physical space, while software monitors the virtual presence of activity on the gallery's network, turning these parameters into sound. 

As the motion of people, objects and information in the space ebbs and flows, so the soundscape reacts, channelling your movement back into the space. You'll also be able to see where the two layers of traffic, the visible and the invisible, show parallel patterns of activity, self-organisation and emerging behaviours.
