The Time-Based Art of Ansen Seale #ArtTuesday #Arduino

Thanks to Ansen Seale for sharing this amazing work!

From the artist’s website:

Time is Money is an analog timekeeping device displaying hours, minutes and seconds. The viewer infers the time from the relationship of the “hands” to unmoving index marks, just like on a standard round clock. Hours are on the left. Minutes are on the right. Seconds and index marks occupy the middle 3 stacks.

The design of the clock was meant to be a kind of visual puzzle, challenging the norms and conventions we use to tell time. As some employees figure out how to read the correct time, they could then teach others, thereby building community within the company.

For this piece I used 2 Arduinos, one which control hours and minutes. The other one basically runs an animation for the seconds. They feed DMX signals to small LED drivers, one per strip. The Arduinos check network time every
four hours to keep the time accurate.

In [You Activate This Space], forty-two backlit panels react in response to the movement of the staff through the space. As people pass each panel, the work responds by changing color and then slowly fading back to the original color, in effect, leaving a trail behind the person walking.
