The Doppelgänger Effect

The Doppelgänger Effect is a series of bicycle rides throughout Manhattan. The rides will function to broadcast an audio track that is designed to compensate for the perceived pitch fluctuation of sound when coming from a moving source (aka the Doppler effect). The audio track is comprised of reading excerpts from Jean Paul's novel, Siebenkäs (1797), intermixed with cognitive research about an explanation of schizophrenics' experiences of doppelgängers. Viewers' experience of the performance will vary depending on their location, stasis, or mode of transportation.
