artist uses 228 spring door stoppers to create vibrant interactive artwork
London-based experimental game developer Robin bomgarten paired the stopper with 228 LED rings, creating a work called quantum garden that can be used to make a light show.
Is the follow-up of his multi-award-
The award-winning work, exhibited as a Christmas tree at King\'s Cross station in London last year, is now on display at the Victoria and Albert museums.
\"I originally built a smaller version (
\"This is called the swing Garden, basically for fun and pure enjoyment of the feel of the door plug spring and the brightness of the LEDs,\" Baumgarten told the Press Association . \".
After a suggestion to a friend Annakaisa Kultima, the Congress adopted the enlarged version of the golden word Turku quantum physics (TCQP)
In Finland, this, in turn, helped him code.
\"The team around Professor Sabrina Maniscalco, who leads the quantum computing team, provides me with the code for their current research issues,\" Baumgarten said . \".
\"Changing the quantum state from one state to another by changing the starting parameter is a rather complicated problem.
\"I suggest that we simulate the input parameters by shaking the door stopper spring on my device and perform an artistic reproduction of the results.
\"This work uses three board Arduino micro-
The controller, used to measure whether the spring is touched and display the graphics on the LED ring.
From contacting TCQP in Baumgarten to installation, the building took two months and now it is on display at the University of Alto in Helsinki.
\"Most of the work makes my life easier, for example, I learned how to design my own printed circuit board, so I don\'t need to weld too much,\" Baumgarten said . \".
\"It\'s also interesting to order 500 door plug springs from Amazon.
\"Baumgarten\'s previous work included many intuitive ways to play interactive games using household items, E. G.

Baumgarten\'s background is artificial intelligence and commercial game development, and he sees his work in events such as game conferences, art exhibitions and the Toronto International Film Festival and the Burning Man.
