RGB Tube
RGB Tube is a physical device that controls the color and sound output of an image in real-time.

Three photocells enveloped with a red, green and blue filter are fitted onto a pipe. A super bright LED illuminates the color palette allowing the device to read the chosen color. The sound is processed in Max/MSP.

The project is a study on the relationship of sound and color, and how altering these elements might impact our perception of an image and perhaps even our environment.

Materials used to create RGB Tube include an Arduino UNO microcontroller, Max/MSP 5.1.5, Processing 2.0a4, three photocells, one super bright LED, cellophane, scrap wood, acrylic paint, and a chair leg. This project was created at the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) in the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU in collaboration with Nicholas Johnson, Patrick Muth and Trent Rohner.
