Sheet Music explores the potential of electrically conductive inks to transform a piece of graphic design into an electronic component. Printed with silver ink these two posters work as aerials picking up variations in the room’s electromagnetic field caused by gallery visitors. Electronics enclosed in the wall convert these variations to sound, allowing participants to ‘play’ the posters by moving their hands in front of them.
