Enhancer is a data chandelier that is a continuation of Jordan's work exploring the concept of how technology can go unnoticed, and yet how it can alter our surroundings, influence how we perceive our environment and alter how we behave and interact both our physical and virtual environment. The project consists of an interactive chandelier that is continuously scanning its environment with sensors determining what has changed in its vicinity. Enhancer has a 4-foot diameter and is ceiling mounted or suspended from above by another means such as external scaffolding of some sort. Enhancer consists of 30 motorized distance sensors which are facing towards the floor continually doing rotational sweeps from 90 degrees to 270 degrees. Each of the 30 sensing objects are equipped with two RGB LEDs which visually physicalize the data that is being collected by the sweeping sensors as they read the distance from the sensor to the nearest object in front of the sensor at a particular degree.
The Ontario Arts Council graciously help with the funding of Enhancer to be exhibited at Gladstone's Come Up To My Room 2018 through the Exhibition Assistance grant.
