light installation

The ‘Light House’ was created by New York-based studio SOFTlab as commissioned by consumer electronics company, SONOS. You may want to check out this installation that reacts to sound at the Sonos Studio in Los Angeles until the 25th of August.

 

Description by SOFTlab:

The installation is a grid of 600 fluorescent light tubes at varying heights and lengths to create an interior volume. Sound is gathered from Sonos components in 4 channels through Max/MSP and sent to processing where various behaviors are programmed to respond to the amplitude of the 4 channels. The state of each bulb is then sent to an array of arduino boards that control custom built chips with relays for each individual bulb. The installation uses light to spatial sound. It was a great opportunity to use two very spatial elements together to “build” an interactive but very paired down space.
