Feedback was an investigation into connections between visual and audio media, and how the two lived together in an interactive environment.
The start of the project included the measurement, analysis, and display of recorded information surrounding the use of a simple one-button MIDI instrument. Users were asked to participate in playing with the instrument. Some users received visual-only feedback while playing, some received audio-only feedback, and others received both visual and audio feedback.
The goal was to gain a better understanding of how feedback affected a user's interaction with the instrument. Plotting this data side-by-side on a timeline revealed that users who received both visual and audio feedback played most dynamically. Users who received audio-only feedback played the least dynamically, and users who only received video fell in between.
