React The Void: An Art Installation

Lara Mezzapelle and Giacomo Deriu created “React The Void”, an art installation in which groups of rubber gloves are inflated or deflated in order to fill or empty space to give the impression of pulsating life. It kinds of reminds me of a sort of air-breathing jellyfish stranded on a beach. From their website:

The installation covers an area of approximately 8x7m and is composed by polyethylene tubes connecting about 400 latex gloves that branch off into space from 3 control units.

Each unit consists of arduino, servo motors, valves and sensors that controls the amount of air flowing through the pipes and gloves.
The control devices are contained within transparent acrylic boxes in order to make visible the operations, as a conceptual integrated part of the work.

The installation is developed as a kind of space mapping in which tubes bundles connecting and radiate from 8 various epicenters created by the intertwining tubes which at these points rise to a higher density of gloves.


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.
