Stephen Cartwrights Self Tracking Chromatic Data Oscillator

Stephen Cartwright has been producing the kind of kinetic sculpture and data visualizations that you just pray to come across when going to an art gallery. He has layers of goodness in all his projects which start with awesome maker skills and end with fascinating quantified self data sets.

Above is his Chromatic Data Oscillator which based on data sets moves the rods and color of the LEDs. Stephen has acquired and displayed eight different personal data sets for this sculpture.

This programmable sculpture can display an infinite number of oscillating waves based on inputted data. Cartwright uses data from a wide variety self-recording projects to create moving graph waves. Data values can be illustrated by the angle of the rods or the color of the LEDs.

The data sets for the initial exhibition of the piece at Fermilab included:
1. Elevation (orange rod angles) and latitude (green rod angles) from cross-country bicycle ride May 20 – August 7, 1997
2. Daily time awake (rod angles) and the difference between the length of daylight and time awake (color changes relative to from blue to green) 2015
3. Daily walking mileage 2015 (rod angles) and temperature (color changing from blue to red as temperature increases)
4. Daily temperature in Urbana, IL 2015 (color relative to rod angles)
5. Daily meditation time 2016 (color relative to rod angles)
6. Daily meditation time 2016 (green rod angles) alternating with daily meditation time moving average (purple rod angles)
7. Average daily wind speed in Urbana, IL 2015 (rod angles) and daily average temperature in Urbana, IL (color changing from blue to red as temperature increases)
8. Average daily temperature in Urbana, IL (blue rod angles) alternating with average daily wind speed in Urbana, IL (green rod angles)


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
