Spring 2015 Cotton fabric structures and neopixels controlled by arduino
The action of inhaling and exhaling has always fascinated me. The fragility of our bodies can be easily read by our breaths as we sleep quietly at night. One could pause the pace of life by just focusing on our humble breathing rythm. Nuve is an illuminated fabric sculpture with neopixels which are programed by an arduino to fade in and out with a slight color change. These light “breaths” represent my thoughts, emotions and imaginations contained within me. The process of repetition that went into making the gathering of 7 yards of fabric, speaks of the objects’ nature of compiling and becoming a cloud “nuve” of thoughts, emotions and prayers.
