Hypercube: 120 meters of programmable LEDs on a concentric sculpture #ArtTuesday #LEDs

Kit Webster’s Hypercube.

The Hypercube is an aluminium concentric sculpture illuminated with 120 metres of programmable LED’s. Through custom software, the ‘pixels’ positioned throughout the sculpture have the capability to directly reflect their point in 3D space and therefor able to reveal the movement of a variety of volumetric forms as they pass through the virtual area within.

This capacity to reveal 3D forms as light is systematically combined with the activation of individual quadrants of the structure and the inclusion of multicoloured textural effects. By placing the sculpture within a room, the ambient light that is generated around it further intensifies its outcomes, culminating in the creation of a dynamic non-linear immersive environment.

To develop the choreography of the Hypercube, a basic rhythm is first set down as a structural framework. The pre-programmed light animations are then triggered and small samples copied, resized and syncopated along the timeline. Sound designs are then employed to evolve the audiovisual synesthetic connection.

The aim of this piece is to reflect on the depth and breadth of spatio-temporal dynamics in a given space, and how much of this information can be identified, harnessed and absorbed through sensory perception.

It’s minimalistic structure is designed to elicit a sense of strength, balance and multidimensionality while simultaneously playing host to (and being juxtaposed by) its intricate choreographies.

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.
