BODYMATOPOEIA



This interactive work is about my experience dealing with acid reflux. My hiccups and burps are quite iconic. This animated diagram gives the audience an idea of what is occurring inside my body whenever I hiccup or burp.




It also features data of how many times I hiccuped and burped from August 25th to August 31st, 2018 to show how the frequency of these anomalies. The piece truly comes alive when the audience interacts with it. There are two wires attached to the piece that are connected to a Makey Makey Play Invention Kit that play the sounds of my bodily functions when touched. As you can see, I have a special sense of humor!
