Digitize EyeShadow


I was interested in the way women wear eyeshadow and how most of the time you can only see the details when their eyes are closed. I sought to translate the attributes of eyeshadow into a digital medium. I made the inital decision to use the light to paint the eyelids when you blink and close your eye. To digitize the object even more and I programmed the individual LEDs to vary their brightness. This added feature allows different patterns to light upon your eyelids.

The wires are insulated and held in a wire frame that balances on your face and using the lilypad as a weight that keeps everything in place.
