The lights are growing dim…

Titled The lights are growing dim..., a line from the 1984 movie Repo Man, this interactive installation embodies a symbolic experience of fictional death. In complete darkness, the simple lighting effect becomes part of an intimate theatrical experience, with a computer generated monotone uttering the last words of a movie character.

Interactive Light and Audio Installation, 2016

Interaction

A distance sensor (HC-SR04 range finder) is positioned on the ground in front of the installation. When a viewer approaches, the sensor triggers the light and audio sequence.
