Timelessness, 2022
Copper, PLA plastic, steel, microcontroller circuitry
Timelessness is programmed to acclimate to its surroundings by changing rhythm relative to the energy around it, like a tree, planet, human, or even the elements within. To convey a narrative of interconnection, the form semantics and material selection is inspired by the evolution of natural systems and growth. For example, copper has aged with civilization for millennia, DNA symbolizes evolution, and light is the guiding force.
To respond to the surroundings I programmed an Electret Microphone Module that reads decibels to correspond to the speed of the light animation, so when the surroundings are loud and full of energy, the light animates faster.
