|Description||FACT is a charity and depends on funding bodies and donations to keep our galleries free and to continue to bring people, art and technology together. In summer 2012, we began thinking about a way to make it easier - and more fun - for our visitors to help support us while they are in the FACT building. Being the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, we were never going to be satisfied with a traditional donations box, so we teamed up with architects FVMA and design consultancy Smiling Wolf to create something extra special.Audible Generosity is inspired by games found at traditional amusement arcades like Penny Falls, but there is more to this game than meets the eye - and the ear.The 4-metre long bespoke box has been fitted with 12 piezo microphones that pick up vibrations made when coins touch the wooden surface. These sounds are then fed through a mixing desk installed inside the box and heard through directional speakers located close by.|
