At the Museums Night the signals of our body become sounds and images with the self-made machine. We use a small electronic circuit to assemble it ourselves. It measures the resistance of different body functions such as breath and pulse. This data is then converted into a oscillation via a small chip, which translates it to the sound that we can hear and can also be observed visually via an oscilloscope.

With the home-made circuitry, all bodies become one sound source - how does your cat sound? How do you sound when you're tired? Or excited? 

In cooperation with the SGMK (Swiss Society for Mechatronic Art).
