Lucy Sansom turned her sister into a human theremin using conductive ink.
Here’s what Sansom has to say about the project:
Initially a project on ‘seeing sound’, I ended up experimenting with the possibilities of conductive ink.
Using hand built circuitry I was able to turn my sister into a fully functioning theremin, the idea being that eventually (with stable electronics) the equipment could be used by dancers to create music that relies entirely on choreography and body movement to generate sound as they dance. In this way the visual performance and the audio become intrinsically linked and thus the viewer is able to ‘see’ the sound as it is created.
