Datadrum v.2.04  was an interactive video installation in which the transmission of sound became  visualised as it traveled across a model city.The video was mapped onto miniature architectural models and participants drummed on electronic pads to interact with the work, triggering sound and image events. This transmission reached out to people inside the Sixth Dimensional City who responded in different ways. Some indifferent and some ecstatic while others mimicked the sound adding to the resonance.

Sohan Ariel Hayes is an artist with wide ranging practice, including performance, video and animation. Laetitia Wilson is a writer and lecturer with a particular interest in media arts. Datadrum v.2.04 resulted from their recent collaborative residency undertaken at Objectifis – Centre for Filmmaking and Photography in Singapore.

This project was developed with the support of the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts’ Research and Development Fund, made possible by the State of Western Australia through Department of Culture and the Arts.
