[electronics / sculpture / sound / interactive]
I wanted to explore the expressive and emotional properties of circuits with this project. the circuit is both sculptural and functional and responds with its own light and sound to the shadows around it. it uses a simple 555 timer circuit as a base unit. six variations of them are combined to create different sound and light patterns.
simple elements of the earth (simple truths) remain the most wonderous to me still. the same kinds of flows of particles that create shattering light and sound explosions in the sky are somehow present in the objects we hold and carry every day. somehow we have created our own contained versions, like miniature dolls.
