Our intention was to make an interactive and collaborative project that was simple. We wanted something that everyone would immediately have had experience with and not need much explanation. Similar to how everyone has played with swings, everyone has experience scribbling. Another goal we had was to connect the visual and the audio. To link certain colors to certain sounds and allow for chords to be made gives freedom to the audience to choose either to focus on drawing what they want, to make music with color, or to just mess around. In this way, our project doesn't have an explicit rule for the audience on how to interact with it.
One of the rules we broke was that of expectation. When people typically draw they rely on their sight to make beauty and collaborate. Here, we wanted to break that convention by emphasizing the sound, and exploring and creating through sound, rather than by sight.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
