Splinter and Thread

Dotlib were commissioned to design, create and install the electronics for the installations Splinter and Thread by artist Esther Rolinson. With the support of Arts Council England and De Montfort University, she has been developing this body of work through modelling and drawing. The work also involved Sean Clark, Dave Everitt and Graeme Stuart who have assisted with research into the technology and materials and the development of complex lighting behaviours.

The pieces required work with acrylic, LEDs, fibre optics and micro controllers to achieve pieces that ran pre-animated lighting behaviours.
