the interactive lighting installation ‘communication on color’ by architecture studio arktonic features in the lobby of the sheraton gunter hotel in san antonio, texas, america. wrapping around four existing columns, the design is part of a renovation project to the historic building. the original structure was built in 1837 and its main lobby is used as a public passage – it runs adjacent to the river walk and is directly across the road from the majestic theater.

 

the interactive system consists of four input devices, a color detector, motion sensor, sound sensor and wifi – the RGB LED network responds to people’s color, motion and sound and is connected to the web by an arduino wifi shield. building a relationship between the visitor and the space, the installation also collects weather information and social media messages to provide a unique spatial experience of a responsive light show.
