a.d.a.s. – (algorhythmic data arrangement – synchronous)is an interactive installation that interprets driver’s license data into a composition and plays them in handblown glass speakers.

“On a daily basis people are voluntarily surrendering their data in order to enjoy the full benefits of functioning with technology in today’s society. a.d.a.s. is a symbiotic data portal, which reacts to the input of driver’s license data or any magnetic strip encoded card. The viewer interacts with the piece by scanning their driver’s license through the magstrip reader. This voluntary action triggers a musical piece and printout based solely on the data that is on their card. Enjoy the music as the ocean of data mining pulsates to a unique rhythm.”

a.d.a.s. – (algorhythmic data arrangement – synchronous) premiered in 2005 in Miami, FL, was shown in Iowa in 2006,
and again in Akron, OH 2010.
