I undertook a short research residency at St. Finbarr's Hospital in Cork working with residents of the Elderly Medicine Ward at the hospital over several weeks between 2005 and 2006. I worked with a small number of women to make sound recordings of people's voices and from objects found around the ward. In response to this experience I made some simple prototype interactive objects which could trigger the sound clips people had made.
One set of objects included a light sensor interfaced with
Another device used a capacitive sensor using
a participative project working with older people living in hospital.
