How to build a simple in house installation

Inspired by a picture of fireflies flying in the woods and leaving trails behind them. This phenomenal scene lead me to do more research about fireflies.

In my session I will show you how I started with this inspiration and turn it in to a small installation. Starting with how to animate the fireflies movement and the entrainment behavior in shader (GLSL).

And then I'll walk you through how I created a simple installation in house with the things you could easily find or build.

This session will involve with a bit of code and shader knowledge, some interesting facts about the fireflies, some tips for making your own installation.
