In 2017 I was asked to create an interactive installation for the Array Festival in Dallas, Tx. I wanted to create a wall-hanging interactive installation that would invite users to play a musical performance that would be durable enough for installation in a public setting. Having worked with Thomas Hudson and CTRLH in the past on his interactive cube installation, I decided to repurpose that existing hardware to work for this installation as a way to continue the momentum. The programming was primarily written by Zac Archer and Gus Reiter helped to create the trailing light effects. I built all of the electronic hardware and assembled the custom enclosure, which utilized a CNC milled wood baffling frame, acrylic diffusers, abs dividers, and piezoelectric sensors. I would like to take this same electronic configuration and repurpose it for future sculptural ideas.
The electronics and CAD files were all pre-assembled in Portland, OR and then I cut and assembled all the hardware enclosures at the Dallas Makerspace a few weeks prior to the event.
