Adavent

An electric chandelier designed and programmed for Christmas spirit.

Through the years, the live candles of many Christmas artifacts have been changed into electric bulbs. The advent chandelier is not one of them and provided a fine opportunity to explore what it takes to make electronics provide spiritual values.
Pickups in each candle controls the chandelier, both activating and turning the lights off.
 

The match added a spiritual value but was not further developed to give room for a fully functioning prototype. The four microphones as inputs did the job of bringing our concept to life.
