Audible mesh is an interactive art piece programmed in Flash, which utilizes camera and audio data to create generative artwork.  The software translates the camera data into a grid (a mesh) of datapoints which are positioned, overlapped, and drawn using sound input.  The result is projected on a undulating surface, which is painted with matte gesso to distort the clean lines of a digital projection, to create a more painterly output.  The installation also generates screen captures every 30 seconds, which is a living archive of the interactions with the artwork.


Below are several renderings of the piece as installed in a gallery. Renderings were created in Lightwave 3D, using a projection that was captured from the audible mesh application.
