I have been thinking about the ways of showing this project at Ars Electronica. I need to work out the materials and structure of the final installation and how it will be experienced best.

I am thinking about having it in a dark room so that people feel more free to move around it.

Ars Electronica exhibition plan 1


  • speakers (2)
  • laptop to run MAX/MSP (with lockbox if in reach, without if placed up high)
  • platform attached to top of room to put laptop on
  • wire and crimp to hang ball
  • spot lights if room is really dark
  • Arduino with USB wire
  • MPR121 with 12 pins and extra pin wires
  • curtain (optional)

Here is how the floating ball looks at the moment with sensors attached.
