Print is dead??

After one of my recent posts about the end of printed media I thought I would share this experimental piece of work by Simon Elvins,the piece is an interesting look into how printed media can be used in conjunction with other senses in this case your hearing. The piece works so as you move over the surface the pen interacts with the graphite so causing sounds and in some cases music.

I always like this kind or work is set between art, science and design as generally I feel this is where true innovation takes place. While not the final piece you quite easily imagine this setting minds ticking about how similar systems could be used for partially sighted people, or possibly in way finding through a city.
