Zipper Orchestra

The Zipper Orchestra is an interactive video installation that combines a combination of the Zipper Canvas as a physical controller and the Zipper Collage Video as a musical display. Users can play music by zipping and unzipping the physical zippers. The screen is a fashion collage, filled with nine video clips of different people zipping and unzipping their clothes. By moving nine sub zippers and one main zipper attached to a canvas, users can control the individual zipper motions on the screen as a conductor. The main long zipper will control nine motions all together. Playing Zipper Orchestra enables users to create acoustic and visual harmony with others, and experience openly sensual feelings.
