Video Voto Maker

Designer | Artist Mike Richison
Year 2016

In order to interact with the installation, the visitors must insert a specially-designed paper ballot filled with sample drum patterns. “Users can follow the tablature in the booklet to re-create rhythms from 80s era hits like Afrika Bambaataa’s ‘Planet Rock,’ Cybotron’s ‘Clear,’ and Run-D.M.C.’s ‘Tricky’—or they can improvise,” says Richison. Politics aside, with the final 2016 presidential debate tonight at 9 PM EST, Video Voto Maker is about to have some choice new samples.
