New Track is a  portable cassette player converted into  a toy tractor. Using magnetic tape as a track, the tractor can pull itself along at a top speed of 4.75cm/s. In April of 2020 it was put for auction on DoneDeal.ie in 2020 but received no offers.

During the Covid-19 Pandemic of 2020 New Track was used to tell the masses to 'Stay Indoors!'

Pixel Tracking Software. Select up to 20 pixels on a screen and there movement will be output as xy coordinates.

Audio scanning software. Listens to audio and gives a visualisation of how often different frequencies occur.

This software was developed for my 'Expansion' project in order to make estimations about what information to remove when codifying the sound onto the piano roll.

Hidden Morse (2014)

 

Using sticky tape it is possible to remove the iron oxide material from cassette tape. This set-up enables the easy removal in segments of morse code. Morse messages can be hidden in the tape as silence.
