Kinetic Sculpture: Lights + Text

Interrupting the regularly scheduled sketchmi programming to update you on my kinetic sculpture midterm project!

Deconstructing a sewing machine to flicker two switches controlling two EL wires shaped to spell words. At any point, only one of the EL wires is lit.

Full display:

you’ve got to love
the comfortable life
will kill you

(with punctuation: you’ve got to love. the comfortable will kill you.)

Half:

you’ve got to love
the comfortable life

the comfortable life
will kill you

Might not go with these words though, as it would be super to connect it back to sewing and sewing machines. Let me know what you think!

Taken in New Orleans, near Frenchmen Street. Tomorrow is the first day of the last quarter of my undergraduate education, and while I’m excited for what’s to come, fair warning – this blog might become less active, updates might start to slow. However, this project has been incredibly fun, with the unforeseen side-effects of helping me relive my travels and other experiences. All in all, I’ll try my best!
