What It Is
Veilance is an interactive kinetic sculpture that senses a user's presence with a PIR sensor, and responds by morphing its form.
How It Works
The PIR sensor senses motion, and activates the motors to start the dance of chains.
The project was conceived as a metaphor for one’s emotional wall. In the post-election political climate where the regional, political, religious, ideological, and generational division of people had been highlighted, Manako wanted to explore ways to visualize the interaction in which one lifts an emotional barrier and connects with others. The capacitive sensor was chosen to represent this interaction through a physical touch, and ball chains were selected for the emotional barrier.
