Assignment 5- Charles Doomany

dsc05938I made a kinetic sculpture which changes states when the viewer approaches it. When the viewer is close to the sculpture the panel becomes illuminated (LEDs pulse fast) and the arm moves counterclockwise to complete the composition, as the viewer walks away from the sculpture, the arm moves clockwise and the illuminated panel pulses slower, returning to it’s inactive state. When the arm is in its retracted state the light sensor becomes hidden.
Although the LEDs and the servo can operate independently I was unable to make them work together, it could have been an issue of power, supplying power to both the LEDs and the servo.
