MRISAR's Arc of Infinity: Interactive Tech Sculpture
A walk through (or roll through as in the case of wheelchairs) sculpture that is approximately 9’ high x 12’ wide, with a 6’ wide interior (designed by our R&D Team of Artists/Engineers). It has interactive electronics, Braille detailing, solar power and metal etched multicultural verse. The concept is to allow the viewer to become part of the art as they pass through its center and experience the sounds and illumination of the faceted and detailed interior. This attribute is further accented by the sensors which allow the art to react to different people by creating various sound and light patterns depending on the individual's stature, their sounds and what they touch.
The sculpture is a futuristic piece which represents cultural unity and diversity while relating to people regardless of disability. The acrylic crystalline segments on the interior and exterior are illuminated by numerous super bright LED's which are controlled by PC boards inside the exhibit which are populated by CMOS, Linear, TTL, EEPROM & MOSFET based circuits. Under bright natural illumination the faceted segments create rainbow patterns as they are faceted at refractory angles. The metalwork is aluminum, brass and bronze segments that have been decoratively finished or detailed with embossed relief. The top of the sculpture has built-in solar panels that charge the unit during natural illumination periods.
This device uses an Optoelectric Isolated Power Supply (LED Light source and Solar Panel) to power a touch sensitive oscillator, creating a low voltage, ultra-low current signal, to harmlessly pass through the human body to activate its circuit, thus producing light and sound patterns. This illustrates how energy can be converted from electric to photonic back to electric, stored and utilized electrochemically, then oscillated and converted into an IR signal and back again into an electrical signal and then amplified. The touch activation aspect of this device conducts a small electrical signal, which turns on an oscillator, which creates sounds. The electrical signal from the sounds also activates in varying degrees Led arrays of vibrant colors. As more users touch the plates the sounds develop deep tonal qualities that are reminiscent of musical notes and depending on how they use it other sound and light effects occur.
This exhibit illustrates; Touch Switch Technology, Energy Conversion, Photovoltaic and Photonic science, Electrochemical science, Electrical Conductance, Optoelectronic science, Oscillator theory, Amplification and Sound Generation principles, alternative energy, sensory inputs and reactionary effects in electronic systems, timing and randomizing theory, visual and wave length specific electromagnetic emissions, sound synthesis, frequency and amplitude, and acoustics.
The exhibit touch circuit operates on a totally isolated power supply. The text supplied on the exhibit discusses theory, technology and applications.
