Abstract

This paper discusses the process of how converting an image into sound can be used to generate an auditory and tactile relationship with photographs, a medium which ordinarily affects a singular sense. In the process of converting an image into sound, haptic feedback can be integrated into the process to allow for the greater amplification of the tangible properties of sound. In doing so a photograph could be both heard and felt. This process has been used to explore how data and artefacts can also be incorporated when generating a musical composition from a photograph.
