This is to continue the work I did with my Senior Capstone as an Interactive Multimedia student at The College of New Jersey.
I'm raising funds to continue work on what was my Senior Capstone as an Interactive Multimedia student at The College of New Jersey. For this project, I created beaded trees that were an infusion of art and technology. Every tree was entwined with el wire (electroluminescent wire) and were hooked up to an Arduino microprocessor so that I could each tree responsive to the environment in their own way, namely sound, light, and temperature.
Unfortunately, due to budget constraints and other issues, I was unable to get two of the trees to hook up to the Arduino unit, and was unable to have them be responsive to the environment via sensors connected to the Arduino. The tree that was responsive to sound functioned properly due to my using a sound-activated inverter that was created for usage with el wire, but that was it.
However, despite these setbacks I would like to continue work on this project and produce more trees like this with even more interesting and artistic designs, and also have all the necessary supplies to connect the el wire to the Arduino unit.
The money donated will be used to purchase all the supplies necessary to create the trees for this project, which will be 6 in total, 9 including the trees already created under this project head, which relates back to the title of the project 'Worlds of Yggdrasil' since there are 9 worlds on the tree Yggdrasil.
Also, every dime donated to this project will go into making these trees as nice and luxuriousness as they can be, as well as purchase all the necessary electronics and art supplies to make this happen; i.e, additional Arduino units, El Escudo shields, transistors, sensors, jewelry wire, variety of beads, variety of glass vases, etc.
