Light art installation first shown at Create:Fixate Los Angeles, November 9th, 2013. The installation consists of three 40”x40” panels with a total of 2,700 LEDs diffused by white acrylic. The red/blue light sequences are generated algorithmically at up to 100 frames per second, creating subtle moire and interference patterns on the viewer’s retinas due to the interplay between rods and cones in the human eye.

Ripples of visible light are initiated by individual nodes at random. The ripples travel in all directions from their source nodes using infrared light to communicate with adjacent nodes.
Viewers may interact with the installation by blocking or reflecting the communication between nodes, distorting the progression of the ripples.
100 autonomous light modules consisting of batteries, microcontrollers, IR transmitters/receivers, LEDs, acryllic tubes.
