Minutiae is a collection of fingerprint data mapped onto a paper scroll and played thorough a custom motorized music box. The data of individuals who posted their fingerprints online are plotted using the same strategies as image processing techniques used by fingerprint analysis technology. This compilation of biometric minutiae explores the interrelation of data sonification and visualization to reveal the sound signatures of peoples digital identities.
