Infrared Detector Cloud
130 printed circuit boards hanging in a spherical grid configuration. Each circuit contains an infrared phototransistor and a high-flux warm white LED. The LED glows in proportion to the amount of infrared light falling on the phototransistor, translating invisible infrared light into visible white light. The installation allows viewers to see something in the environment which would otherwise be invisible. The LEDs are controlled purely by the physical properties of the electronic components.
Electronic Copy can either be a passive piece of architecture, capturing latent infrared light within a space, or it can be forced to respond via infrared-based electronics: remote controls, infrared LEDs, etc.
