The main advantage of the integration of open-source software and hardware are affordable and reliable technology at a very low cost.

Threa 2020 and Threa mini interactive sound art installation is a research-creative project that aims the awakening of the participants. It is a non-static object related to the viewers and the broader social context, it bends our attention to artistic practices that are part of public spaces. This case study is aiming to use art as an interactive universal language and demonstrate open-source technologies as the medium to create digital arts. Projects, as the aforementioned, attempt to demonstrate the power of art and its ubiquitous influence in modern artistic practices.
