Abstract

Plink Blink, an interactive art installation, allows three participants to make collaborative music by blinking their eyes. Human beings can blink voluntarily and involuntarily but generally they do not think about blinking. Blinking goes unnoticed because it is a silent action. In contrast to its quiet nature, blinking is rhythmic. As a result, blinking is a resourceful input for sound generation. We wanted to link two sensory organs, eyes and ears, creating a playful and surprising environment.
