The Audioscope was commisioned by Klankenbos, an outdoor museum of sound. Klankenbos (Forest of Sounds) is series of curated sound installations in the forests of Neerpelt.
Neerpelt is a popular node for recreational cyclists. With this in mind the Audioscope was developed; a specially designed augmented reality panorama viewer which is placed on the cycling junctions around the forest. With the Audioscope cyclists are able to ’see through the trees’ into the domain of Klankenbos. This is visualized in the view port through digital imagery, videos and soundscapes of the sound installations which are layered on top of the actual video stream of the forest perimeter.
The installation is accompanied by a smaller motion activated module which alerts passing cyclists of its presence through a cacophony of bicycle bells. The Audioscope itself is placed in front of a big alumnium frame through which onlookers can behold the forest.
The concept design, physical prototyping and programming was done by me from start to finish.
