interactive pencil sculpture
Michael Kramer _ 12/2018

Parts used:

  • Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE
  • MPR121 Capacitive Touch Sensor – Breadboards
  • Ikea Pencils

Bluetooth Midi Controller with ten touch sensitive contacts.

Ikea Pencils are often collected at the store without been used in the store or afterwards at home – so they are often end up with their older colleagues lying around in a drawer. With this Sculpture, some of these were reused and arranged in shape of a globe – discussing the globalization in context of scandinavian design around the world. Also this interactive sculpture shouldn’t be clearly pro or contra Ikea so I decided to cut the audio of famous german advertisement slogans into single words and let the viewer rearrange these to new statements.
