ketchup Bottle projection


The Ketchup bottle is visual and auditive project for the course of Readymades.
I wanted to use a commercial object, mass goods, we use in our daily life and highlight its function.

How does it work:
The Ketchup Bottle is cut open and inside it, I added to it a pressure sensor, every time the Ketchup bottle is pressed, it sends value to Arduino, and from Arduino to The MaxMsp patch That let us hear different sounds of a ketchup squeeze randomly every time the bottled is physically squeezed. Simultaneously to the sounds when the bottle is pressed it projects a video of a red splash over white wooden cuts of fake food.

Fake wood food cuts painted in white to map the projection of the Ketchup onto them:
