"N00sphere Playground" by Sachiko Hayashi
http://xrl.us/HUMlabSL
Mimicking the from of a sphere in a real-life playground, "N00sphere Playground" is an interactive sound installation in which a sphere of enjoyment is created through play and experience of sounds. Beneath its surface is an underlying notion of noosphere, closely related to Henri Bergson's "Élan Vital" and its role in evolution.
