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.
