Art thread blog describes it in the best possible way here .
Our group project ,MesON is made by the following team .
Meson is the Greek word for the “medium” such as TV, internet, radio, newspapers. This is an experimental project which investigates how sounds affect our cognitive processes: such as memory and ability to focus. Our inspiration video..
It measures user’s memory capacity by generating a sequence of colours that the user has to repeat in the same order.The sequence starts out with one colour gradually adding extra colours one by one, and therefore getting more complex.
There are 3 stages of the experiment:
the user who plays the game is subjected to:
a pleasant sound
a slightly noisy sound
a very noisy/annoying sound
During each stage user can see their success rate on a Progress Bar and therefore notice and compare their results depending on the sound played.
“Can i play again?”
“I really want to win!”
”The baby crying is a personal sound that drives me crazy. It really made me loose patience and concetration”
”It is a matter of personality the way it affects you, for others it maybewill be motivationg, for me the last part was really difficult to complete.”
”I tried to focus on the game and do not hear to the sounds. Impossible.”
