Liquid Light

Jeffrey Park, Yeseul Song

An interactive toy in which light imitates water!


Yeseul and I were both interested in creating a light sculpture for our midterm, and we decided to use a gyro sensor to use light to imitate water. This toy is a concept for a larger version that we would like to build sometime and place in Washington Square Park. This toy will change color depending on different behaviors, such as picking it up or tossing it in the air.

Continuing on my theme from my final project, we want to explore different ways in which a viewer can control “nature.” In my pcomp final project, Endless Winter, we use ultrasound sensors to control wind and snow. For this midterm, we use light and gravity to imitate controlling water.
