Arduino BDEA-E2016 Electronics Interaction LED Lighting Student Project
 

A digital reinterpretation of a mythical creature to keep you company on those long, lonely exam nights. This project explores the manipulation of light in order to simulate the presence of a being. Furthermore, it sets out to investigate the atmosphere of situations where one would encounter supernatural beings.

Will-o'-the-wisp is an installation piece mimicking a mythical creature with the purpose of keeping you company on those long, lonely exam nights at ITU. It consists of nine square and transparent pieces of acrylic tied together to form a larger square. Fifteen cyan colored LEDs placed inside holes in the acrylic emit light that spreads across the object’s surface. The wavy lines edged into the squares enables the light to travel throughout the object. By controlling the sequence of when the LEDs light up, and the intensity of which the emitted light, Will-o´-the-wisp seeks to give the impression of a living organism that intrigues its audience. Furthermore, this installation is a tool used for investigating the atmosphere of situations where one might encounter supernatural beings.
