Splinter is a programmed LED and acrylic installation. It is a simple line drawing rendered in 3 dimensions. Complex behaviours play through the structure creating waves of movement and changes in colour. Splinter was developed as part of the series Melt, Splinter and Thread over a two year studio practice and research period with the assistance of Artist Programmer Dave Everit, Artist Programmer Sean Clark and Dr Graeme Stuart and Creative technologist Luke Woodbury. Funded by Arts Council England, supported by the ICOT at De Montfort University.
