9 Random Spots
9 random spots is a connected artwork that displays and broadcasts a color patern from Casa Jasmina. A 30x30x4 cm wall piece that displays with RGB LED lights 9 color spots randomly generated according to the ambient radioactivity. A Geiger counter is connected to an Arduino Leonardo with a Yun shield. Each time the Geiger counter detects a radioactive decay, the Arduino sofware changes a random spot to a random color. The color information is also published online where it can be retrieved by other subscribing instances of the artwork around the world, creating a connection with casa Jasmina. This network of artworks share a very site-specific information with the original location. Since it is truly random data, it can be the same in diferent places only if it is transmited. This artwork demonstrates a property of the network: the space contraction. Diferent spaces, the surface of the works in this case, appearing the same are equivalent and so they represent the same space at the same time.
