Dark Distortions

For Woven Studio and Thijs Biersteker, I helped creating an installation that just did exactly that. Dark Matter is something we can not simply see, but it reveals itself by bending light as it travels through space. The effect is called gravitational lensing.

With Thijs’s ingenuity we together worked on creating an experience that would reside in art and science museums accross the world. I designed custom electronics, wrote code that would be powered through sliprings and communicated wirelessly through ESPs (A small compute unit), where it worked it’s magic.
