Ascendor consists of a twenty five foot tall column of 12 two meter LED tubes running up the center of the main staircase at The Clemente Center. Sensors allow it to measure the volume of activity in the stairwell and render it in the form of a light display, playing the length of the column.
Ascendor came about as the result of an invitation proffered to artist and designer Paul Clay, to create something special for Creative Tech Week, in order to enliven and activate the entry of The Clemente - the building where his studio is located. Paul in turn sought out a team of creative technology collaborators, including Chris Jordan, Josh Goldberg, and Leif Krinkle Mangelsen to execute the project.
Special thanks to Stefan Verhoef, and everyone at InventDesign and DiGidot for the generous donation of all the LED tubes, and for their newly developed DiGidot C4 controller. Special thanks also to The Science Project and to everyone at the Clemente Center and at Creative Tech Week for making this artwork possible.
