Simple Sample

June 6th, 2015   -  Share/Link/Bookmark

Sound-reactive Light Installation at „Zero Abend Film und Musik“, Akademie der Künste Berlin, 2015

„Simple Sample“ is an about meter square diffusive panel lit up by RGB-LEDs controlled by a self design circuit and software. In random intervals, a (sound-)signal is sampled and its information converted into the light output signal, which is updated about 1000 times per second.

For the event, sound generated by Düsseldorf artist „Pyrolator“ was used to control the object. The usage of the techincal „sample“ is in a different way, as for correct reproduction, a regular interval of sampling is required. „Simple“, as used in the title, refers to the simple, non-predictable software routines.

shown 17th – 22nd of July 2014, at GOLD+BETON, Cologne

1) “RGBlaster”, version of 2014, 3 Strobe lights filtered Red, Green and Blue

The strobe lights are set to the slowest flash rate, which due to manufacturing differences is not exactly the same. Sometimes two or all three strobes fire at the same time, resulting in colored or white light

2) “RGBlaster 2”, 2014, RGB-LEDs, electronics, translucent white foil

The installation shows the three primary colors, one at a time, always in the same order. Because of speed changes, the colors seem to merge into white light, with optical illusions / patterns to be seen by the human perception at certain speeds.

3) “A Blink”, 2014, modified Fluorescent lights

A hidden microprocessor generates truly random numbers, which are  processed into random delay times, matching the human’s eye blink rate. The fluorescent light is then switched off for the shortest possible time (1/50 of a second), resulting into an experience resembling a blink.

All three works are perceived different by the naked eye, compared to the documentary seen here.
