BollART: The Sonic Bollard

What: A prototype art-bollard with a theremin, dead-drop WIFI music share, interactive theremin-driven LEDs, and a Gothamesque shell cut on the laser cutter. An artistic bollard, or BollART, re-imagines the mundane Urban Bollard Space as a ready-made sculpture garden, in which multiple artists, schools, hacker teams etc from around WA are invited to decorate and bling up a standard bollard exoskeleton. The Sonic Bollard was Team Artifactory's winning entry to the 2015 ArtHack / Hack The Festival competition hosted at Space Cubed, 20-27 February 2015.

Who: Mega Travers (theremin), Tim Gilchrist (LEDs), SKoT McDonald (exoskeleton), Morgan Strong (documentation), Craig Wales (3d prototyping & rendering)

Why: a $5000 cheque-carrot. Also Art.
