Art and Technology are Friends

Installation at Ingenuity Cleveland

Just came back from Ingenuity Cleveland art festival. I installed a piece titled Rainfall.

Rainfall consists of 24 vertical lines of LEDs on a wall 16 feet wide and 8 feet tall. Each line is made up of 10 modules with a microcontroller and 48 LEDs, so the total of 240 microcontrollers (plus a hidden main controller) and 11,520 LEDs are used.

Wiring up all of those modules were a pain, but I got through it.

The installation was a success. People were stopping and gazing at the piece, then taking pictures and video.

After the festival was over, the installation was moved to Cleveland Public Library, where it will be on display for 3 months.

I had a great time in Cleveland. Thank you so much everyone!
