Switching on the Universe
"Rose had the sort of eyes that manage perfectly well with things close by, but entirely blur out things far away. Because of this even the brightest stars had only appeared as silvery smudges in the darkness. In all her life, Rose had never properly seen a star. Tonight there was a sky full. Rose looked up, and it was like walking into a dark room and someone switching on the universe." - Hilary McKay, Indigo's Star
I was inspired by this quote, and also being near-sighted, relate to it as well. So I decided to use LEDS to create the big dipper, added hanging felted "clouds," and a light switch to visualize the scene in this quote.
Toggle the switch to turn the lights on and off.
Uses felting and sewing techiniques, soft circuits, and arduino.
