Leuchtenschwarm as part of the Raumapparate exhibition.

As part of the project module “Raumapparate” (spatial devices) I developed a light installation called “Leuchtenschwarm” (swarm of lights). It was shown at the annual exhibition of student works at the Bauhaus-University Weimar from 10-12 July 2009.

The installation consisted of 26 lights and reacted to the physical presence of visitors. The movements of people in space influenced the brightness of the swarm’s elements. A continually changing light space evolved. By interacting bodily with the installation, the visitor created the setting for his own spatial experience.

The installation used camera tracking and was realised with Arduino and Processing.

The project documentation is available as DOWNLOAD (German).
