Kinetic sculpture

Art, mechatronics
I've always been obsessed with perceptions, how we see things differently from each other, how all senses are interconnected by one simple mechanism of physics, frequency. My goal with this prototype is to transform sound waves into physical, visible waves. Can sound be seen? That's what I'm trying to find out. A tiny computer (esp32) is analysing the environment sound in real-time and repositions 16 servo motors 100 times a second.

While this is a basic prototype made with only 16 moving pieces, I can control over a thousand servos simultaneously. I aim to build this system on a large scale for nightclubs and festivals.
