About the Project
Ian Clothier presented an outdoor installation of hybrid Polynesian forms (water jet cut mirrors), and the creation of a directly solar powered audio instrument where the level of light reaching a 5 watt solar panel changes audio. Waving hands over the solar panel disturbs the light received and creates audio.
