nervous fluffiness at share

Nervous, Interactive audiokinetic object, Bjoern Schuelke 1999/2003

Restless Régine posted some impressions from the Share festival in Turin,
among them the charming work "Nervous" by Bjoern Schuelke
The interactive audio-kinetic object “Nervous” is a bright, orange and fluffy hemisphere.
When approached, it become nervous, start to beep and move frantically.
The Nervous body contain a Theremin. It is one of the first electronic music instrument in history, invented 1917 by Leon Thermen in Russia.
The Theremin works electronically and provides an electromagnetical field which can be influenced by the dynamic body-capacity of the spectator.
The changing frequencies of the theremin trigger the mechanic, the orange plush body starts to turn… a curious dialogue starting between the spectator and the object. Are the human emotions interfering with the emotions of „nervous”?

Here´s a video of the fluffies in action
