Jiayu Liu’s Ocean Wave Installation Replicates Waves on Shore #ArtTuesday
Beautiful installation by Jiayu Liu from Creators:
“To visualize more accurate shapes of the bubbles generated by the wave, the lighting needed to be constantly adjusted based on the real-time changes of the waves,” Liu explains. “The lighting system was installed on the moving slider, and it couldn’t be connected through cables [so] we used wireless communication through two antennas to cover the entire physical space.”
As Liu explains, the system presents multiple gradients of blue in the light blocks, which are coordinated with the breaking waves’ different positions. Liu says that this, combined with the use of multiple contexts, was meant to create a strong foundation of multidimensional thinking.
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.
