eyeDrums is an interactive video sculpture that was born out of a short story about an antique from the future. In the story an electronic drum pad from the 80's that was forgotten over time suddenly comes alive. The drum pads are its eyes and they open and react to every time you hit on them. When you hit a drum, the particular eye projected over that drum will close. Using Max/MSP/Jitter I turned the instrument into a live organism that reacts to the user input.
