Aim: understanding which lighting is best for the 2° prototype light effect


At the beginning I thought that the lighting would be static using a warm temperature LED sitting on the curve of the copper sheet.


During experimentation, I discovered while moving the light source a few centimetres up and down that the movement gave a representation of the opening of a lotus flower. I decided to incorporate movement to the piece.


As I had previously experimented with motors but found the noise to be at odds with the serenity of the lighting objects I opted to create a bespoke lighting unit consisting of 3 programmable LEDs which would fade gently from one end of the other in an arch shape



Materials:

3 LEDs

3 PCB mounting boards

laser cut acrylic to sit the LEDs and the boards

wires

arduino


Fitting the mini board onto the acrylic laser cut




My aim is to have each Leds fadeing slowly
