Resonant Walker, 2016


As people walk in cities, they will often subconsciously walk at the pace of the city itself—they resonate with others and fall into a similar walking speed. Some say this is a reflection of economic activity, others to do with the cities population.

This device, when pushed in front of you, tells you that the speed you are walking at, and then which city in the world you are resonating with.

For example, when walking at 1.9mph you resonance with Blantyre, Malawi; whereas at 3.3mph you resonate with London.
