Working from the heart of the historic centre of Mexico City, Moritz Waldemeyer has fused technology, wearable architecture and performance together to create a moving light installation.
Commissioned by Abierto Mexicano de Diseño, Moritz Waldemeyer worked alongside Mexican fashion designer Carlos Ortega to create the architecturally inspired skirts which were worn by a combination of dancers, performers and acrobats. Each of the sculptural skirts were fitted with innovative LED technology, developed by Moritz Waldemeyer, that emitted an array of colours and animations while the performance took place.
Applying parametric architecture principals the skirts have a skeletal design that come alive into a multi faceted shape. The LED’s applied to the underside of the skirts allows light to seep out the multiple cut outs giving an indirect illumination to the performance.
Utilising the back drop of historic Mexico City the procession was performed twice throughout the week long design festival bringing innovative lighting design to the streets.
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.
