Wonderland Echoes

Description

Wonderland Echoes is an interactive online sound installation that allows viewers to create music and soundscapes through an immersive visual and auditory experience. Inspired by Disney movies and electronic musician Pogo, which borrows sound clips from movies to produce original songs, Wonderland Echoes follows the same approach by appropriating the sounds and visuals of the Disney movie, Alice in Wonderland. This interactive installation allows the user to create unique music performances, by mapping carefully chosen sound clips from Alice in Wonderland to different key strokes.

Objectives

This installation was created to illustrate the rights artists possess under the United States law to create derivative works of art that make use of copyrighted materials under fair use.

Live Node Map

Description

This Live Node Map visualization presents real-time data reported from Catchpoint © nodes running Synthetic Monitoring tests. The nodes report to a Node.js server application with the results of each test, and this data is used by the visualization to create a map that shows all locations being tested at the time (encoded by the circle position). Additionally the visualization also shows the different websites being targetted (encoded by the circle color), and the Webpage Response Time metric resulting from each test (encoded by the circle size).

This allows the user to get a real-time snapshot of how their different tests are responding across all different node locations at a glance.
