  Work Details  
  The installation consists of a real physical string connected to a virtual string on the network. The real string (12mm diameter, 15m length) stretches from the floor diagonally up to the ceiling of the space. On the floor is one end - the earth. Up above is the connection to the network, to one of the other ends somewhere else in the world. Vibration sensors translate the analog pulses to digital data. Users strike the string, making it vibrate. Accessed 25.04.2008 from http://sensorband.com/atau/globalstring/index2.html
