VIdeo Voto Matic
Video Voto Matic combines a video from the current presidential race with a drum sequencer and a vintage voting machine. This interactive exhibit lets the audience remix the footage to make beats and loops. Users punch their rhythm into a “voting booklet” that mimics the infamous punchcard-style Votomatic voting machines used during the 2000 Florida election debacle. Instead of a providing the names of candidates, the booklet is filled with sample drum patterns. Follow the patterns suggested by the booklet or make up your own.
