Carbon Noise is an interactive sound/kinetic installation designed for tall and narrow spaces, such as a staircase where it was first presented. In the installation a microphone is listening the space, transforming the incoming noise level as rotation of a dc motor. The dc motor in turn has a long cable attached, which has a piece of charcoal at the end. The charcoal rests at a piece of paper hanged midair when there's no noise in the space, but starts to swirl around when someone enters the space. The paper is changed every day, creating an unique piece of art every day in relation to the amount of people making noise in the space.
