Gaurav has made an interactive kinetic installation that creates and morphs volume through the use of many small repetitive elements coming together to create a space. The installation will be hung from a high point, such that these elements are at eye level of the viewers. All the elements will move synchronously, with the help of motors and microcontrollers. Following the law of closure from Gestalt psychology, the elements come together to create a form. As a whole, the installation will respond to the viewer’s presence and movement; there will be motion sensors that can sense the environment, and, based on this, the pattern of movement of the installation will change.
