Martin Hesselmeier




As the previous version of capacative body was exclusively running on several microcontroller-based modules (each having its own simple program logic) for the new version a custom software/hardware system was developed to control all el-wires from one main computer via DMX. This enables to adabt the work to new spaces much easier and the system is able to control up to 400 meter of el-wire. All the needed hardware is built into a 19“ rack together with a small computer running a custom software.


For a brief description of the work itself have a look on the previous version.
