Cody Ryan (b.1993) is a light-artist and creative technologist. His unique inventions and tantalizing illuminated objects, are created through combinations of LEDs and incandescent light, micro-controllers, glass, solid acrylic, wood, metal, and any other component he can get his hands on! He studies the way light permeates throughout various materials and leverages cutting-edge technology, such as the Arduino micro-controller family, to embellish his objects with randomized animation sequences. The resulting animations do not repeat and remain unpredictable, organic, and ever-changing. In addition to the innate pleasure one may gain from watching one of his light objects, Cody employs these creations as teaching tools, hoping to bridge the gap between technology and art, and inspire others to create in their own way.
