Installation premiered at ICAD 2006.
Excuse Me! is an installation built around ideas of embodied social creativity. Agents listening to their environment try and recreate their aural stimuli through a matching process between feature extraction of incoming audio to their own internal database of sounds. Errors in matching and a limited but up dateable internal database lead to a miscommunication between the agents and their environment which allows for a evolving sonic structure to occur.
