Research and recent innovations have led to an amazing increase in types of visual displays and screens and their use; indeed, in our predominantly visual culture, they are everywhere. A typical person carries at least one device with a screen, is presented with them in public places, uses them at work and in many leisure activities. They are so ingrained in our everyday actions and habits that we don’t even notice them anymore.

L.S.D invites its users to engage in a new perception of their daily environment.

L.S.D feeds on light via two LDR (light depending resistor) mounted on a suction cup, allowing the sensors to be mounted on any screen surface. An analogue synthesizer converts the light input to sound waves. This device can be used in many different configurations and feeds from any light sources. L.S.D design is specifically aimed at screen reading/listening.
