A shy interactive installation – Mischer’Traxler’s Ephemerā installation “comes alive” when no one is around #ArtTuesday

A shy interactive installation – Mischer’Traxler’s Ephemerā installation “comes alive” when no one is around. From Dezeen:

….Ephemerā by Mischer’Traxler consists of an oak table and two mirrors, decorated with water jet-cut metal shapes of leaves, flowers and insects that appear and disappear depending on visitors’ proximity to the installation.

“They are all interactive and kinetic and react to your presence,” explains Katharina Mischer in the movie, which was filmed at the unveiling of the installation at Design Miami 2014 earlier this month. “When a visitor gets too close, all the elements hide away and become very functional again. Once you step back they become very alive and more decorative.”

…The leaves and insects on the table lie flat when people are nearby, but rise up as soon as they move away, powered by small embedded motors. The mirrors feature a digital representation of fauna on the surface, as well as metal flowers that sprout out of the top and sides.

“All the three pieces are reacting to the audience via ultrasonic sensors that are hidden in the frame of the table and as well in the mirrors,” says Traxler.

“It’s not just that we play on the graphics that grow on the mirror, the 2D becomes 3D,” Mischer adds….

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.
