Exhibited at the Brighton Open House festival 2011

A collaboration with Helen Plumb.

This solar powered piece reacted to the wind and touch by lighting up its leaves and making gentle clicking noises. Honestly.

Using an arduino circuit with processing. The arduino microprocessor can be programmed to use its digital and analogue IO to communicate with the outside world! Inspired partly by the honesty plant, the ‘leaves’ were constructed from a resin with embedded LEDs. Movement of the leaves connected a circuit which lit up the appropriate LEDs and sounded a small piezo transducer.
