WERC re-launched Lily, this time with injection molded casings, still featuring the hard- and software we developed together back in 2016.
From their site:
Lily is a light installation that floats on the water surface. It’s inspired by complex patterns that exist in nature, such as schools of fish or flocks of birds. By using sensors Lily is able to interact with its environment. The motion of the water, the temperature and the size of the flock all influence their observable behaviour. The Lilys make their own decisions, so they create light patterns that we are not able to predict, taking away the control of the artist. Nature is the host of the Lily and is the only one influencing them, allowing their behaviour to form in a dialogue between nature and technology. Every individual Lily makes choices. The choices of the individual are amplified by the flock. Looking at the organism as a whole, complex behavioural light patterns start to emerge.
