I was lucky to collaborate to a project with the great danish artist Henrik Vibskov.
The art installation was made for the London Design Festival and took place at the V&A Museum in the tapestries gallery.
After 2 weeks of prototyping, testing various LED rings and programming, we eventually settled for EL-wire.
While I could have used any arduino for the project, we wanted to add sound to the lamps and also trying to make the lamps respond to each over so that was a perfect job for the Raspberry Pi.
The RPi’s were controlling the Sparkfun EL Escudos Dos and changing light & sound according to distance readings of the HC SR04 ultrasonic distance sensors.
