noah feehan: FIXTURE #ArtTuesday

noah feehan: FIXTURE.

FIXTURE is an array of 60 lights; each light corresponds to a data packet describing the physical orientation of my phone. The mapping from sensor value to color is as naive as possible, with X, Y, and Z accelerometer values linearly scaled to R, G, and B lighting intensities.

…FIXTURE is an experiment about remote forms of presence. I made it because I’m thinking about the ways our phones/devices often serve as functional surrogates for our presence, and to how to expand, modulate, or isolate various parts of that relationship. A preliminary mapping is a logical first step, which is what you see here.
The primary signal is as described: simply, the accelerometer values sampled each minute. The secondary signals reside in the extrapolations made possible by the presentation of the data in this form, this fixture: A metronomic progression of orientations; a series of postures; a progression of states.

FIXTURE is designed to facilitate an easy metonymy, a peripheral awareness of this taut line strung casually between two spaces.

Every Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!


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.
