step 2: people have capes
site-specific soundscapes use to augment visual and experiential aspects of traditional architecture.
sounds change in real-time based on outside inputs (e.g. shifts in local traffic density, weather changes, astrological changes, time of day, seasons, etc.)
compositions are created using traditional instruments, binaural field recordings, digital instruments, effect algorithms, and traditional analog and digital effects.
the compositions are always evolving and never repeat.
this work is best described as "adding a soundtrack to a movie".

"...a piece of smart furniture that’s as poetic as it is useful." -Fast Company [more...]
"...given its attractive design and amazing versatility, we can only hope we see these innovative smart lamps very soon." -Brit + Co.
"...turn off notifications like calendar alerts, email popups, vibration alerts..." -PSFK.com
Place Lamp connects to the owner’s smartphone and allows the owner to set multiple digital geofences around the lamp. the invisible geofences allow the lamp to know how far the owner is from the lamp. the lamp then changes color based on the distance of the user to the lamp.
for example, the Place Lamp might be set to turn blue when you are out of the country, a subtle orange glow when you are in the office (but not at your desk), and white when you are at your desk – where it functions as a task light. rather than dealing with out-of-office settings or notifying your team that you are away, this automated function provides an element that allows everyone to be a little more connected.
Place Lamp can also be used to automate communication filtering. for example, Place Lamp can be set to fade in-and-out when the owner gets a text, call or email from specific, owner-designated people. this allows the owner to turn off communication notifications (calendar reminders, email pop-ups, vibrating phones, etc.) that aren't related to the task at hand. this is a great way to immerse yourself in a project without worry of missing important communication.
We’re most excited about the potential in unique situations. What could this do in a hospital setting? How could it aid in communication for the deaf?
(the lamp housing is made from recycled plastic and is recyclable)
