MRISAR's Interactive Tech Sculpture; Ladybug
This exhibit is a Futuristic version of our Photonic Spectrum exhibit. The geometry of the exhibit accents an otherworldly appeal that will excite the visitor’s interest. The concept is to allow the viewer to interact with the art as they cast shadows across the sculpture or wave their hands over its surface area. The sculpture can "See" the degree of light around it and responds with sounds and illumination of the central column and the domed crystals on top. One or more people can operate this exhibit at a time. For public use it comes with a barrier that contains extension sensors for the sculpture so that it can react to humans from a distance. It can use solar energy via remote panels. This tech art sculpture is 4' High.
It utilizes a series of photo resistors to control a sound synthesizer and LED arrays. The sound synthesizer consists of two oscillators which work in unison by resonating at specific intervals dependent on the signals from the sensors. The exhibit features sensors and LED lights that react to the presence of shadows. Depending on the position of the shadows, which are more effective when cast by a user’s hands the exhibit can produce sounds ranging from high frequency down to a low rumbling bass.
This sculptural exhibit demonstrates sound synthesis, sensors and light control, alternative energy, sensory inputs, reactionary effects in electronic systems, timing and randomizing theory, visual and wave length specific electromagnetic emissions, photons, sound synthesis, frequency and amplitude, and acoustics. A Solar conversion kit is available.
This exhibit is only for rent! It is part of a large Traveling Tech Art Exhibition we are creating!
