i ching lights

the i ching – or the book of changes – is a classical Chinese text that reflects on the evolution of events. i have tried to abstract the hexagrams of the i ching and imagine them as a moving light sculpture. cold cathode tubes are programmed by an atmel chip. a darling array allows the lights to PWM. the effect is a random cycling through the 64 possible manifestations of the i ching hexagrams.

  2. Oh this is very cool. I’d love to see it triggered by motion sensor on a person in its space so it functions as a reading as well.
