The cybernetic construction in “Fire Painting” sets off explosive levels of kerosene. Its burning can be handled by subtile movements of the sensory data glove for tactile formulation of the fiery image. Thus, the image can be manipulated, yet it constantly escapes control.
Looks like one of the boards is an Arduino Mega tucked inside that enclosure. Maybe two? Just Amazing what you can do with OSHW.
UPDATE: Yes! She gave me a brief rundown of her setup:
Arduino Nano master, analog multiplexer, 5 flex sensors, 3 axis accelerometer, 1 axis gyro, I2C communication, 2 Arduino Mega slaves, 16x 12V DC kerosene pumps driven by 16 PWM TIP120 optocoupler drivers, 16x 230V AC electromagnetic valves driven by opto-triacs.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
