260 Years of Ducklings

hex file / 260 years

260 Years of Ducklings allows for anyone to own an artwork larger than one's lifetime. On the Calliope Mini, an affordable single-board computer developed for educational usage at German elementary schools, the "ducklings" program will perform for around 260 years, playing the individual notes of "Alle meine Entchen", a german nursery rhyme, ten years apart, which amounts to a total playtime of 260 years. If the Calliope breaks or is removed from a power source, the program resets.
Every note is accompanied by an image of a duck displayed on the 5x5 LED matrix display.
