Good news, I am now working with a partner!
Alina joined me and we are working together on the hourglass.
We’re making a virtual geometric hourglass that will be like an abstract interactive art piece. The user can hang on the wall and count down. When turned upside down, the count will restart.
The hourglass will consist of 16 rows of LEDs in a 16″ canvas frame. We made a timeline, a bill of materials and already ordered the Neo Pixel LEDs. Right now we want to get the prototype working right before we get the lights. Also, we’ve been testing the plexi and canvas to see what visualeffect we get.
