I am currently adding more rafia strings to make the space more immersive and planning to buy trash bags to make it more dark.
For the digital output:
I plan to use two different arduinos, each with 120 LEDs connected to it, so in total there will be 240.
The two arduinos will be producing lights at two different frequencies. Instead of having all 240 LEDS working at one frequency.
Hopefully, it will create a more interesting effect.
One idea that I was playing with is to get a fitbit and try to track my heart frequency for a day and extract that data and see if I can take the data and translate it to control the lights. So it will be a kind of visualisation of my heartrate.
For my project I decided to create a device that involves refraction and also light to distort the viewers sense of sight.
I decided to use some reflectors in the box to make the light bounce off the walls of it making it a bit more immersive. I also decided to not only use light but strobe lights to make it a bit more psychedelic for the viewers.
I had a difficult time struggling with trying to find a container for the water. Initially, I wanted to use a water bottle, but I realised that it does not wobble as much as i would like it to. I also realised that it water in cling wrap captures light more than when it is in a waterbottle.
Process of making the box:
I had to duct tape the cling wrap to the box after sealing the cling wrap with heat.
