Representing data by using Arduino and Processing
to create a connection between the data input and output,
producing a physical representation.

At a time when
people are constantly on the go, the
connections between them are developing and changing; becoming more virtual.
A crucial part of the project is
the connection between two people who are physically present in the room.
The interaction with the installation
produces the shortest path of light in
three symbolic colors.
Input: Pressure sensor as a switch
Output: Light from Neopixels projected
through acrylic columns
The project is assembled by creating an
LED Matrix with Neopixels strips,
eight strips of eight LEDs, wired in series.
Acrylic columns are glued on top of each
LED so that the light is projected vertically along the z-axis.
The paths of light are calculated so that
they take the shortest route through the
The 16 pressure sensors were made
by using a piece of velostat and two
strips of copper tape placed on either
side of the velostat.
Each pressure sensor represents
one of the 16 personalities.
