It really is this tiny!

 
 

mINi BETWEEN

 As the name implies mINi BETWEEN has been an excercise in taking the existing form of my previous piece  IN BETWEEN  and playing with the scale. While this adaptation required a number of component revisions and an entirely different Arduino library to drive the pixels, it also came with its own unique characteristics derived from these new materials.

 One of the most notable materials is the 3/32" fluorescent blue acrylic rods. While the rods on its larger sibling were cut by a band saw, I snipped the rods to length myself for this piece because of their size. I didn't know it at the time but the decision to snip instead of saw resulted in an almost crystalline surface on the top of each acrylic rod.

 When light hits the head of each rod it splinters into distinct pieces of red, green, and blue and this effect is further compounded by the blue tint of the rods themselves. Looking at mINi BETWEEN up close is like staring at a field of prismatic diamonds. Dazzling light in the palm of your hand.
