Electro-Lumo-Eco is an interactive artwork made from electro-luminescent wire, controlled by an open source arduino microcontroller that gathers data from the space around it. A series of sensors detects various changes in the environment such as humidity, temperature, the amount of light and its frequency, and the saturation of various gasses in the air. The sculpture can react to these natural factors by growing in patterns that are determined through an algorithm using the data it collects. It seeks to make people aware of the ecology of the man-made and natural environment and how we affect it as a crowd of individuals.
