April 22nd and April 24th
- Worked on code hack for the project seemed to have finally figured it out to something simple and works with the radar sensor.
- Wiring is good to go and the project is almost up and running. Excited for the final product.
- Cant seem to figure out the delay and either way I know it will have a delay, but once the lights have ran so many times it has trouble wanting to restart for almost 10 seconds. I tried adjusting delay speed but didn't help anything.
- Shown video below and you'll see me try to make it go off but had to wait longer.

- I finished modeling the cardboard over the weekend, now i have to attach the fabric and details as well as solder my electronics.
- The fabric came in and looks fabulous, I'm excited for this project.
- I'm still confused on the coding and have tried to do more research into it and can't seem to find something that explains it well.
- Overall I think I'm still on track just nervous to solder because of the voltage divider.
Here are some pictures of the cardboard design.

- My fabric has arrived in the US will be leaving NY soon. Hopefully it'll get here this week or beginning of next week.
- Step this week will be trying to combine my code together and start soldering.
- Also have to start molding the cardboard
- Work day, Thomas will not be in class.
- I plan to solder on Monday with Thomas assistant and plan to have cardboard molded by next week. Working on the form this weekend.

Monday 04/01 and Wednesday 04/03
- Work days in class for project.
- Use voltage divider so Arduino isn't pulling all the power
- The neopixel needs to run off its own power wire
- Found website to help generate code for neopixel
- waiting on material to come in, hopefully next week it'll be in the states.

- Studio time, Wednesday artist presentation!
Use a voltage divider for the circuit to evenly divide the volts to the LED and the sensor.
- Artist Presentations
- SIGGRAPH is a conference for electronic makers, engineers, scientists, artists.
- Still work time, waiting on parts to get in, hopefully next week.

- Push to do something that hasn't been done.
- Olafur Eilasson for inspiration
- fabric material idea to wrap around cardboard of project inside and outside:
- honeycomb sequins https://www.etsy.com/listing/670472393/honeycomb-iridescent-sequins-on-spandex?ref=related-2
- silver mirror https://www.etsy.com/listing/645296450/silver-suede-hd-mirror-special-textured?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=reflective+fabric&ref=sr_gallery-1-19&frs=1
- Nail down your ideas for Wednesday class, get materials together, more sketches, schematics of electronics aspect.
- Create an experimental moment. Create an aesthetic.
- Going to use cardboard for base that will be a hexagon shape and have a bigger kaleidoscope feel. Roughly 12 inch wide and 15 inch long with 5 inch
- I've purchased the shiny material I'm going to layer on the inside and also will attach the RGB strip on the inside possibly with hexagon shaped mirrors as well.
- plan to paint the outside and then layer with some sheer cheaper fabric.
- Going to use a motion sensor which is one thomas gave me that was only like $2 and works wonderfully. I think it will work out good for what I need. Then the project will light up when motion is detected near it.
Artist presentation due next wednesday!!
Very satisfied with my project and how it came out. I also think everyone else had great aesthetics and ideas for the project. ...
