Pipes – interactive installation

Pipes is an interactive installation, part of One Design Week’s exhibition Being Post Digital. As you can see it consist of old metal pipes, wires (not visible), LEDs, photo resistors (LDR) and Arduino Uno board. My idea was to made an interactive game-like object. When someone approach the object he/she can place his hand on one of the holes and LED will shine in another hole. Unfortunately some problems come up while I put the pieces together: 1st – I wasn’t allowed to put instructions and 2nd – the place was too dark. So I was trying to setup the right values in the Arduino code and suddenly the installation become so sensitive that now there’s no need to touch it. You only have to pass by it and you will see the lights. Video coming soon!
