About The Sound Is Watching You

"The Sound is Watching You" is an interactive bio-sonar experience in video and surround-sound that feeds on audience participation. Taking place for one night only as part of the 2011 Scotiabank Nuit Blanche event on October 1st in Toronto, visitors will enter the installation and their movements will be transformed using echolocation technology into a blend of light, video and 3D audio that constantly re-generates, morphs and immerses the participants. Each visitor becomes an instrument of light and sound — moving, dancing, and gliding through a space that they have helped to create. By entering the space, you become part of the exhibit. You aren't just looking at art in "The Sound is Watching You", you are the art!

Since its inception, SubZeroArts' goal has been to use technology in a transparent, non-invasive way that uses experience and interactivity to encourage our audience to become part of the art and add their own humanistic elements to our creations. We see "The Sound is Watching You" as the culmination of our work to date, the successful realization of a synthesis of ideas we have been working toward for a number of years, and the first in a series of interactive artistic experiences we hope to produce. We are very pleased to be able to share "The Sound is Watching You" with you as part of the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2011 event!
