Video report

Following an invitation from Ellen De Nys, Waking Life Festival organiser, we designed this intermedia light installation. We materialised a low cost display constituted by 32 T8 led tubes with two lengths: 120 cm and 60 cm. The display is controlled by an arduino instructed to switch on and off each one of the 32 T8 tubes. The tubes, aligned on a vertical plane, form the words ‘waking life’ according to a typographic font custom designed by DSType for this installation. Randomly calculated visuals are displayed and some times the words ‘waking life’ were clearly seen.
