HAARP First Prototype
We based our project concept on research we did on the HAARP facility in Alaska and the conspiracy theories surrounding that. There are various conspiracy theories about what the facility is believed to be capable of, a lot of which focus on the idea that the facility would be able to influence the climate and weather.
For our installation we have decided to work with this idea and create a miniature version of the HAARP facility that is capable of manipulation the local climate. We detect users touching or being close to our installation using capacitive sensing and control audio using the data.
The audio we generate is based on weather and atmospheric occurances believed to be influenced by the HAARP facility, as well as text-to-speech sections of quotes from prominent conspiracy theorists.
