mes etoiles by hernando barragán from colombia

designer's own words:

Mes Etoiles is an interactive wall that responds to proximity of people with a luminous reaction on its surface. Getting close to the wall activates the magic effect of hundreds of light dots in the translucent surface activated by the sensors that are part of the surface as well giving the feeling of being drawing with the light. People can use the wall to express, play, communicate or building collective creations using their bodies as instrument.

The wall is constructed using stainless steel, Plexiglas, laser cutting, custom made electronics, proximity sensors and LEDs. The bill of material for these elements will be determined by the final size of the installation. Variations can be produced to accomplish a specific form or topology in the final installation place.The qualities of the low resolution are intended to stimulate new and forms of auto-expression and communication.
