water surface - 2015
This installation displays water surface movements collected by a 3D camera. The camera captures a grid of points from the surface as it waves and ripples. The movements are scaled and sent to a corresponding matrix of 1,215 LEDs installed in the gallery space. The color of the LEDs shifts from purple to blue based on the relative peak and trough of the waves according to the distance from the camera. Through the installation the dynamic and fluid movement of the surface of the water is simulated in three dimensions by artificial light in the gallery.
