Catherine Roberts – Paper Nature Concept Art

For my project I plan on making four paper mache trees with LEDs on it to make them sparkle like they are covered in snow. Also I am going to make a silhouette of a person with LEDs behind them that will be animated to look like footsteps in the snow. Lastly, I want to make a building in the background such as a church or clock tower that will have a yellow LED inside that can turn on and off. All of these lights will be controlled by touching either the trees, silhouette, or church to trigger the respective light sequence. The lights will be programmed using an arduino. Additionally, the MaKey MaKey will trigger each light sequence using capacitive touch instead of resistive touch so the ground will not need to be used. Here is a sketch of how the finished product might look:
