This collaborated work Light String is an interactive installation which aims to simulate the swing movement and musical sound of the wind chime. When people touch the light ray, the light ray will swing and create the Ding-Ding sound just like the wind chime swinging when it encountering with the wind.


The interaction is mainly achieved through Arduino and processing. We tied sixteen pieces of laser lights to the servos which will rotate when the distance sensors sense the “touching”. Meanwhile, we put a series of light sensors on the ground which when the light ray swing through will give the signal to the processing to generate the sound.
