HOW WE DO A collection of animations of observations on how we interact with the world. By turning the dial of the telephone, you are interacting with the world and met by miniature animations on the corresponding screen displaying actions that we often perform automatically in our day to day life.

HABITATUAL Our everyday spaces are full of sounds that are habitual and constant. We don’t always realise they are there. Habitatual puts a spotlight on our sonic space. By touching the large copper circuits, you can play Habitatual and become part of the surrounding soundscape. You become the amplifier of your own surroundings.
