Interactive Installation, 2o16
Toolkits: Arduino, Laser cut, Prism, Fabrication
Role: Circuit design, fabrication for server and light Source
Introspectrum is a light installation which allow user to interact with one of the prisms and generates rainbow as the light path at the same time. It combines a plastic string sculpture with light and rainbow created by one light source and four prisms.
How it work?
More than 4000 plastic strings hang in a 30inch x 12inch x 18inch transparent self-made acrylic box to visualize the path of the light.
Each of the three prisms inside the box connect to a servo with a calculated angle. They keep rotating and refracting the light.
The prism outside connect with a potentiometer allowing user to rotate and control the prisms inside the box. With clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, user can interact with different prisms to see how light and rainbow changes in the box and create a light sculpture of their own.
