dollar bill ghetto blaster

dollar bill ghetto blaster – 2011

Almost everyone has a dollar bill in their wallet, this questions us about what foreign currency means when you are no longer inside the country of origin of the bill, and how when old on to these bills like lucky symbol or souvenir of a trip. We decided to make something out of this idea, this way we can give another use to this but trying to keep the object still intact or at least to be recognizable as what it is and what it means.

This exercise was done during a trip to boston in march early this year as a part of experimenting with sound, paper circuits and conductive fabric at the high low techresearch group form the mit media lab

The result is this, we called it “One Dollar Bill Ghetto Blaster” it’s a dollar bill with a sonic coil connected to a potentiometer made of velostat and to a transistor and a a coil speaker made out of conductive fabric with a magnet on the backside of the bill. The circuit is powered by a coin cell battery.

Thanks to Hannah Perner Wilson for leting us participate in one of her workshops “a kit of no parts” we learned a lot!
