Light Chimes

Rendering a Riverside with Full-Spectrum Light and Melodies

During the 2017 Portland Winter Light Festival, Sticky's installation brought the stars closer to home with a combination of light and sound. With the theme “Between the Rivers and the Stars” we combined science, community, and fun to create a temporary art piece that instilled a sense of synesthesia by mixing color and melody. 19 individually-programmed and soldered digital units responded to movement from below, creating a vibrant harmonic experience using colored LED light and sounds crafted by little hexes. Our 18 foot wide installation provided song and illumination for each passerby's unique path below it.
