An Interactive light installation for kids by FROLIC Studio, participants grab the controls and work together to create a beautiful 3D light painting. They control speed, height, colour, and brightness of a light hanging from the ceiling, which is set in motion by a motor and propeller. As it flies around in a circle, unique patterns are created, captured in a long-exposure picture. One to three people can each control different parameters to create something even more complex.
Once created, the picture is uploaded to flight-painting.com and a unique code is given to the participant so they can find it on the website, download it and even share it.
We created custom software to remotely control the camera capturing the long exposure images, transferring them to a computer and finally upload them to the online gallery.
We used NW.js to build a native MacOS app that handled communication between the physical board controlling the installation, the camera and the website.
