Vectors is a new piece of laser design made especially for Paisley’s Town Hall building. Taking inspiration from the retro-futuristic imagery of oscilloscopes and Milton Bradley’s Vectrex gaming system, Jack will use high-powered laser systems to illuminate the grand architecture of the Town Hall with rapid-fire patterns, slinking shapes, and sizzling neon motifs.
Jack Wrigley lives with another human, a parrot and a grumpy cat in Glasgow, Scotland.
What is a oscilloscope?
An oscilloscope is a device that allows you to see how voltage changes over time by displaying a waveform of electronic signals.
If you connect an oscilloscope to a microphone you could see your voice wave pattern.
What is the Vectrex gaming system?
The Vectrex was a self-contained home video game console released in the 80s – think Asteroids or Tempest.
It came with its own graphics display and unlike other consoles did not need to be hooked up to a television set.
