is an interactive installation composed of laptops and people. Sounds are produced based on the physical movement of each laptop machine in X,Y and Z coordinates. All the machines are connected by a network, and each one can send its movement information to some of the other computers, so each user/laptop can be both marionet and puppetmaster. Each machine has his own sound persona, and the screen functions as a visual indicator for messages coming in.
