Amber Light Digital Machine #ArtTuesday

Interactive Amber light installation with Arduino

There exists ambivalent attitude towards amber from the point of view of electronics – on one side, it’s an ideal dielectric, from another side, it gave the name to all “electricity”. The main idea of the project is to use amber at the same time as decoration and as non-standard conductor of data, which so to say implements the poetic “amberization” of information and as a result, of the visitors’ portraits.

The visitor makes a self-portrait which is transformed into the data flow represented by flashes which are transmitted through large pieces of amber. Every portrait is transformed into a low-resolution picture, where every pixel has 256 gradations of brightness. The information about pixels’ brightness is further transferred as flashes of light through the pieces of amber and is perceived by a photoresistor. A special screen is showing the image appearing pixel by pixel; this image is later printed on a photo printer. The speakers which supplement the installation emit sounds which correspond to the brightness of each pixel.

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery 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, 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.
