“Automatic Glassware”

circuits, leds, actuators, glass jars

“Automatic Glassware” is an electronic installation work of hundreds of autonomous light and sound generators that collectively produce an evolving field of audiovisual polyrhythms. Inside glass jars a simple circuit fires an led and actuator at one of three musical intervals. As time passes and batteries slowly die, the individual generators align and drift from their neighboring generators creating semi-random shapes of light and sound that course throughout the installation.
