THE PROJECT.........................

MOD’s latest exhibition is IT’S COMPLICATED about  Dynamic Interconnectedness. The exhibition aims to explore complex systems and the types of interactions between their parts or between a given system and its environment.

One type of structure featured are 3D designed tiles that have been engineered to create habitats for native marine intertidal species that live on seawalls to encourage native species colonisation and foster biodiversity.

Sandpit was invited to design an interactive version of a seawall tile, that the visitor can sculpt through adjusting holes and ridges into a unique creation of their own. 

Before COVID, MOD. had envisioned a series of tactile dials for the visitor to use – but approached Sandpit to see if the interactivity could avoid physical touch. 

Sandpit developed a unique touchless control system using LIDAR sensors (yes, lasers!) which can detect the hand of a visitor hovering above them. Through raising or lowering their hand, the user is able to sculpt the unique features of their own seawall tile, which is added to a gallery of those created during the exhibition.

THE TECHNOLOGY..........................

LiDAR Sensors, Raspberry Pi,Custom Software
