The Making of Terrors of the Breakfast Table, by Tyler Tekatch

    Terrors of The Breakfast Table

    We used Max 6 for all of the programming, including the AHarker Externals library, Ambisonics Externals from ICST, and externals from Jamoma. We experimented with a number of different approaches to the sensor, including sound analysis, but finally settled on an anemometer designed especially for breath by the company Modern Device.
    The sensor was paired with an Arduino Uno, (via ArduinoMax_In_Out_For_Dummies) to which we also added LEDs in order to illuminate the sensor housing sculpture, and which were also mapped to the viewer's breath.
