Deluge is a sound and light installation that depicts the white noise of unoccupied radio frequencies as a showering rain of light. As digital technologies become more adept at reducing interference and noise through omission and censorship, we are quickly losing touch with unmediated white noise, that static hush in between the stations, and playground for the imagination. Many antenna like structures, LED strands are clustered together, each representing the activity of the broadband white noise being picked up by simple transistor receivers. From these discrete elements, a cloud of lights is formed, filling the space with a form activated by the absence of pre-determined content. The sculpture plays on the poetics hidden within the language of both analog and digital electronics.
Deluge consists of 35 hand made modules, each containing a transistor receiver that generates white noise, an amplifier w/ speaker, and 12 LEDs.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
