"Sampling the Landscape: Aspect" with ambient light: Accordion style art book with Japanese hinges, LEDs, and microprocessor (embedded in slip case, not shown)."Sampling the Landscape: Aspect" in ambient light. Accordion style art book with Japanese hinges, LEDs, and microprocessor (which is embedded in slip case, not shown).

This art book's 4"x8" pages are each illuminated by small LEDs controlled by a microprocessor. Switches and/or sensors in the pages detect when they are opened, which triggers programmed changes in the lighting. For certain of these scenes, the light cycles according to patterns sampled from the natural movement of leaves and grasses.
