My first foray into physical computing and Arduinos was an art installation. It didn’t work out exactly as planned, as things of this nature are wont to, but I think the end product was interesting. I learned a lot. As Charles Eames said,
The details are not the details. They make the design.
I made a video of it, which has some artistic value – arguably – on its own.
It may also be a joke on my mother, who has many many handbags.
