Marc De Pape

Designer/Artist/Thinker in Toronto Canada

Marc De Pape is a creative technologist, an artist/designer/thinker with a Master’s in Design in Digital Futures from OCADU and a BFA in Digital Image and Sound in the Fine Arts from Concordia University. Between his undergrad and his Master’s, he worked at the Royal Ontario Museum as an Audio/Video Producer while also freelancing as a director/editor, primarily for music videos - most notably directing Tegan and Sara's Alligator. His Master’s thesis project, titled The Chime, was an assemblage of sensors that translated environmental data into music. The project - featured on Mashable, IQ by Intel, PopSci, Designboom and Creative Applications, among others - attempts to harmoniously address his current interests in the intersection of technology and creativity, the cultural significance of code and data, and the embedding of situated technologies in the routines of everyday life.

Symphonies of the City

BY MARC DE PAPE
@ VOL 25 ON SEP 20, 2013

Marc De Pape noticed that people are often indifferent to small changes in the weather. To combat this, Marc has created a tool that plays music differently according to the environmental conditions of its location. Sort of like a wind chime, but not restricted to just wind.
