The ‘(ultra) light network’ is a light-emitting, lightweight, three-dimensional tetrahedral mesh of 10m x 6m x 3m. It features more than 50,000 individually addressable LED pixels that react to an algorithm running on five microcontrollers, which respond to the presence of visitors using three ultrasonic sensors located at the bases of the structure.
