Winter Show Proposal – Endless Winter

Endless Winter by Pan Pan and Jeff Park

Capture and manipulate snow using ultrasound sensors and blower fans. Have fun with snow while staying warm indoors!

Pan and I like the idea of controlling nature, and we wanted to create an art display that was both beautifully serene and amusingly interactive. After several iterations of ideas, we decided to build a window display in which viewers can control snow depending on where they stand relative to the piece. Our project uses ultrasound sensors to detect proximity, which in turn activates blower fans to turn on. These blower fans will blow fake snow within the display to recreate a wintry scene.

Pan Pan will be the point person for this project. This project is our final project for Physical Computing.
