Old Cardiette EKG converted into the Road Reader. Plugs into car, manually operated by driver.
The Road Reader was produced with a grant from the Spokane Arts Fund (SAGA).
Reader pedal is placed in the back of the car. It is attached to the Cardiette/EKG.
The pedal is on a spring.
As it bounces the EKG machine draws out the movement.
I documented all street surfaces, as a way to learn and identify different conditions.
Certain roads and neighborhood areas were mapped out before a "drive" or "read".
Documentation of streets and other details and individual "street reads" were produced.
All physical road drawings were scanned and digitized.
A Road Reader Guide was produced using all the data collected.
Digital illustrations and design.
All text was hand typed and scanned.
12x16, digital print
Road scans (reads) waveforms translated back into sound waves.
Road drawings translated to vector lines, coordinates translated into midi files
