Spica is a wearable technology concept exploring visualization of sound and the synthesizing a dialogue in another medium.
The driving factor behind this project was to react against the recent political and sociological oppression towards intellectual freedom in the current political environment of Turkey. By converting verbal expressions into a motion, this project aims to propose a new medium, a visual representation of a dialogue. It speculates a dialogue form, which can be synthesized by the user with three inputs, threshold for sensitivity, delay for responsiveness, and range for aggressiveness. These inputs that can be manipulated through potentiometers are used to alter digital readings using an Arduino microprocessor. Through this synthesis, dialogues can be self-censored, inappropriate verbal breakdowns can be filtered out or oppressed voices can be amplified visually.
