Midterm project for the Spatial Media class – an interactive installation for a fundraising event.

RFIDs are attached to drinks. When a person moves their drink from one cocktail table to another, a “string” is projected between the two tables. If someone then crosses that “string” it gets plucked, like a guitar, and small speakers on the tables emit a tone.

The idea here is that the installation is encouraging people to move between tables and mingle.
