Installation REFLEXE

Reflexe is currently one of the greatest projects that I am a part of. It's about mechanical mirrors, that are reflecting and fragmenting our reality. The authors of the work are Petr Vacek and Adam Cigler.

The project originally came down as a winning idea of the Signal Festival idea hunting call/competition that took place in PrusaLab a half year ago. The point of the call was to find a new bright idea that can be brought to life in PrusaLab and finally be showcased on the festival to thousands of people.

Signal Festival is a multi-day festival celebrating light, that takes place in Prague, with a bunch of artists changing beautiful places of Prague to interesting and thought-provoking light artworks. You can get more information on www.signalfestival.cz

As I am a part of PrusaLab creative team, I had the amazing opportunity to be part of this project.

At first, I was a little bit scared of the fact that this project won. I thought we can never pull off a project of this scale. But we did. We did it and it's amazing.

My role in this project was to design the controlling hardware and software together with Bob Heida. From the python script that is controlling the mirror modules to a C# application that is playing the animation generated by Petr Vacek in grasshopper.

There is a whole documentary made. When it will be available, I'll post it here. Or you can read more about the project on my blog where I will take a look at how we managed to get it working from the hardware/software side.

Swipe left ➡️➡️ An ESP32 wireless mirror controller ⤵️ · #13 – PROJECT REFLEXE #2 · I've talked about our project Reflexe in post #8 go check it out on my profile! · Now I would like to talk about the remote controller I've made for direct control of the mirrors. · By tilting the controller you are tilting the mirrors the same way live. Then there is a slight delay from left to right that makes wave ripple animations. · It was a very rush job done in less than 10 hours hw/sw development during the @signalfestival · Designed in Fusion 360, developed in @prusalab, controlled my an ESP32 with acc/gyro module and connected with the mirror over WiFi. · #makermatty #maker #thinker #technology #light #show #arduino #esp32 #raspberry #electronics #3dprinting #prusalab #makerfaire #prusa #prusai3 #mk3 #3d #3dprints #prusament #lightshow #prague #electro #mm
