Cognitive Cities Stage Design

Cognitive Cities,which took place in February of 2011 in Berlin, I was commissioned to make an audio-reactive stage design element that would illustrate the voice of the speakers throughout the day. I solicited the help of Bausteln Studios (Philip Steffan) and AlbinoPlast (Clemens Gammer), and ended up making a 256-LED matrix, wired with an Arduino MEGA board and controlled via Processing, all housed within 300 kilograms of white lego bricks.

Thanks to the #CoCities team, and all the collaborators.

The source code can be found on my GitHub.
