  • Summary

    The magic LED dodecahedron is both street art and street ights paired with an interactive audio interface in the form of a homemade synthesizer and drum machine. Come create music!

    Full description of yer concept

    The magic dodecahedron is an interactive LED sculpture that will react to audio created by borderlings through an homemade modular synthesizer and drum machine!

    What's better than walking around Borderland admiring all the beautiful sculptures in the night?
    -Interacting with them!

    Come and create musical noise by twisting knobs and patching cables around and see the visual representation of the frequencies.
    Experiement away and when you're satisfied, leave it running for others to see and hear before continuing on your adventure.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    No new moop will be created by vistors or by me. Anything I bring will come back with me.

    How can other Borderlings co-create with you?

    By creating sounds and rhytms that will translate into light for other borderlings to see.

    Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? ~300W

    • Will there be light? Yes! The whole visible spectrum of light will be used.

    • Will anything BURN? No.

    • What is your audio footprint? Minor, most of it will come from headphones but I might install a small bluetooth speaker.
