I worked for the Science Gallery London with Francesca Perona and Michelle Korda on this project called “Mouth-CTRL”. Thanks to two co-creative workshops with people with disabilities from a community in south London and teenagers coming from socially deprived areas, the group realised two interactive installations about breaking the boundaries and redesigning the daily use of the mouth in the future. The first installation was about controlling a video game through the mouth and the second were lollipops through was possible to hear music thanks to the bone sound conductivity. Jeweler Nuala Clooney collaborated at the project realising concept jewels of future mouth music readers accessoriesThe composer, musician and neuro-scientist Shama Raman that composed the music for the installation allowing to collect datas about the relation between taste and music.
