Light Orchestra

Ka-Ping Yee, Benjamin James
1250 Total Control Lighting LED pixels, Kinect 3D camera, Beaglebone microcontroller, computer, custom software
Light Orchestra (2012) is a visual instrument that you control with your entire body. Walk up and be the conductor of 1250 LEDs: use your movement to transform the music around you into brilliant light. 
With a subtle gesture, create a flicker; with a sweeping motion, throw fountains of color. Change the colors you create by moving closer or farther from the wall.
