MzTEK and Guerilla Science: Hacked Human Orchestra

MzTEK joined forces with Guerrilla Science, Shauna Concannon (PhD Media Arts and Technology Engineer) and artists Kobakant to design wearable instruments. In a weekend workshop, women spent a day reproducing  electronic instruments and sonic soft-circuits to produce the most amazing Hacked Human Orchestra EVER!
I made this video as part of my Artist In Residence position at The Centre for Creative Collaboration on June 30th 2012. You can see this video on Guerrilla Science’s website here.
