  • What do these places look like?
  • Custom develloped hardware Automated camera action after 3 minutes of silence
  • Device
  • Obvious places like nature and mountains but also Amsterdam on Christmas morning and the highest building in the Netherlands
  • A silent place where you can hear engines roaring still isn’t silent, birds can make a lot of noise when it’s very silent You make noise with everything you do
  • Every step you take makes noise, your clothes make noise Moving makes you sweat and thus reduces your skin resistance
