Signal To Noise from LAb[au]

LAb[au] used 512 vintage split-flap modules to create an immersive, kinetic installation. Joseph Flaherty at wired.com writes:

Inside an aluminum structure, roughly the size of a narrow body airline cabin, 512 vintage split-flap letter mechanisms are arrayed in four rows at eye height. Controlled by a hidden computer, each of the individual mechanisms flip continuously through letters until the software recognizes that a word has been formed by adjacent units.

signal-c-28-660x541

The computer freezes those nodes and flips their color to red while the others continue to cascade, revealing a hidden signal among the noise. “As artists we try to extract the character of our time, to give contemporaneity a form and a meaning,” says Lab[au] principle Manuel Abendroth. “The circular installation invites the visitor to plunge into an audio-visual composition right in the center of a calculation process of an auto-poetic machine.”

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
