Music listening habits change with technology. Nowadays, one faces a dichotomy between more music getting to more people more fast, and a general smaller attention span for music, the so-called “artist’s paradox”; more storage space for more music one never has time to listen to.
By amplifying some of these habits and rituals, “I Shuffle” intends to raise awareness, provoke and stimulate a reflection upon them. Therefore, four small units were built – based on a(n) (in)famous mp3 player -, each one of them emphasizing one particular aspect: shuffling, passive listening, short attention span, movement and etc.
“I Shuffle” uses Arduino, Processing and Puredata.
