Artist's footsteps, Arduino GSM Shield, SIM Card, Raspberry Pi, kickdrum, electrical components, Dimensions Variable, Duration Variable
Going/Staying uses the artist's footsteps to create rhythm. The everyday act of walking becomes centralized within the gallery space through this kickdrum. Pressure sensors in the artist's shoes connect to a 3G GSM Shield Arduino device that allows a signal to be sent whenever the artist is within range of cell phone reception. This signal is sent to a server that is then read by Raspberry Pi which triggers a motor to move the pedal that hits the drum.
