MDF construction containing microelectronics and hologram mirror chambers. Front and top panel graphics laser-etched into painted acrylic.
Closer inspection at certain viewing angles reveals the photons to be holograms. These illuminate from inside via LEDs and control electronics underneath.
Concept sketches: Initial ideas were more elaborate than the final design. The aesthetic converged toward a more simplified, pure and clean black-box typology.
Early wiring diagram for the Arduino microcontroller and associated electronic hardware required to drive the behaviour of the photons.
