Hi, my name’s Nour and my background is Graphic Design. I’m particularly interested in Wearable technology and digital interventions, such as digital street art art. With the arduino, I hope to create cool of screen projects that fit in to the fields that I’m interested in.
1- The project that got me interested in LEDs and they’re collective beauty when programmed is the Blinkenlights project, created in 2001 by Chaos Computer Club in Berlin. Light projectors were installed inside each window that are programmed to turn on and off according to a set of commands.
2- Another project I found interesting is a performance called Holistic Strata by Japanese artist Hiroaki Umeda. Its a kinetic installation that examines visual recognition through dance and video.
3- Hussein Chalayan’s LED dress project is composed of a matrix of RGB LEDs embedded into a 2 dresses for one of his fashion shows that display a series of changing colors as a visual portrayal of the 2 seasons, summer and spring.
