One Hundred and Eight [Processing]

Created by Nils VölkerOne Hundred and Eight is an interactive wall-mounted Installation made out of ordinary garbage bags. Controlled by an Arduino and Processing, each of the bags is selectively inflated and deflated in turn by two cooling fans. The installation runs in either “patter mode” or reacting to people nearby – see video.

The installation consists of 108 interconnected modules made from MDF. Each single one is equipped with a white, semi transparent plastic bag, two cooling fans and a relay that switches the electric current between the fans. One program is running on an Arduino mounted to the lower side taking control of a set of shift registers that trigger the relays individually. A camera is mounted to the ceiling above and connected to a computer on which a second program (Processing) is running. The program registers and tracks movement via the camera and sends the necessary information via a serial connection to the microcontroller.

      This could be a great installation to study interaction design.
