Happy Vernal Equinox!

Just in time for spring (despite the heavy snow we just had) we’ve finished the time lapse movie of forsythia flowers blooming.

We used an Arduino and the IR LED from an old VCR remote control to take a picture every few minutes for two weeks. And as you can see, we found a good use for the bound volumes of the Bibliography of the History of Art along the way.

Here are some images showing the progression. We’ll be sharing our code soon.
