Senior Thesis Exhibition Sketch

Filed under: BFA Senior Thesis — Mia @ 1:27 am

Waterwheels is a series of six acrylic flip boxes with corresponding fabric panels. Each panel consists of a photograph that is printed on cotton and backlit by programmed LEDs. The LED sequence suggests falling water as an audio track of waterfall sounds plays on a project iPod.

I’m testing LED patterns that simulate falling water before I program panel Arduino microcontrollers. I drew the patterns on Illustrator layers, animated the layers in Photoshop, then exported the file as an animated GIF.
